Out and About

My team and I did a load of leafleting round Icknield Port Loop over the weekend. I spoke to many residents during our rounds, and the following themes came out:
  1. Recycling collections. Not all residents are getting their boxes returned to their front doorsteps - I will get the Council to sort this out.
  2. Illegal dumping and litter. Residents aren't happy that dumped fridges etc just get a sticker put on them, rather than stronger action being taken. One resident suggested putting a skip at the end of the road from time to time to take litter and larger items. I don't know about the viability of this, but again I'll take this up with the Council.
  3. Noise. Some residents are unbelievably inconsiderate. I've suggested making a complaint directly to the Council - the offender shoudn't be able to find out who you are.

All in all, a great weekend's work and I'm looking forward to the election on Thursday May 3rd.

Finally, great to see such an amazing turnout in the French presidential election. If only we could get 85% in Ladywood!

I wonder whether our 'anon' is Bore's female (allegedly anyway) Ladywood colleague, the truly ghastly Cllr. Kath Heart-attack-waiting-to-happen?

The posts are certainly every bit as ignorant and venomous as one would expect from her and, let's face it, who else is there left in the Ladywood Labour party?
