Busy weekend

It's been a busy weekend!



On Saturday morning, a team of local Conservatives (myself included) spent some time strimming, weeding and otherwise cleaning up the junction of Upper Meadow Rd, Hansom Rd and Arkwright Rd in Quinton. Doing this ourselves is only a temporary measure until we get something permanent arranged with the Council. The place looked much better after we'd finished, and certainly the residents we spoke to agreed. Thanks to all who helped, including Cllr Len Clark and Cllr Jane James from Quinton, and Cllr Deirdre Alden, Parliamentary Spokesman for Edgbaston Constituency.



I spent most of yesterday at Harborne Carnival, manning the Conservatives stall. We must have given away over a thousand balloons and plenty of our 'Carnival Special' leaflets. Loads of people came up and spoke to us, and it was a very useful way of engaging with local people and finding out about current issues. The carnival as a whole was a great success and it looked like everyone was having fun. Again, Len, Jane and Deirdre were there, along with Cllr John Alden from Harborne, volunteers from Conservative City Branch, Birmingham University Conservative Future and many others.

Hey T-bone you must be desperate to become a councillor and as for Cllr Deirdre Alden, Parliamentary Spokesman for Edgbaston Constituency she will be buried very soon as a Parliamentary Spokesman for Edgbaston Constituency.HA HA

Hey lobster face (Garth)how many council meeting have you attended since becoming Cllr ?

Gareth said...

You really are hilarious anonymous. Such a ready wit. Not quite got the hang of plurals yet or prepositions for that matter. Never mind.

After reading the posts from anonymous I can only conclude that the literacy hour in our schools is not working. If I was that poorly educated I suppose I would want to be anonymous too.

Hey lobster face (Garth) & Keith Barton is this the best both of you can do nice try. Shame that you are gay.

I see gutless anonymous Labour bloggers pop up here as well.

I have two words for said Labour bloggers 'Scotland' and 'SNP'. Explain that please (100 words max).
