A big “thank you” to those who helped in the Kursaal ward at the weekend. The response we received from residents was very positive.
As always the passion demonstrated by the residents of the ward for their local environment was there for all to see. One highlight for me, was being invited in to a 93-year-old resident’s lounge, where he proceeded to talk about the changes he had seen in the area in his lifetime. He had lived within the ward for pretty much his whole life with the exception of the time he had spent in the services during the 2nd world war. One thing we discussed was the lack of the community spirit and the growth of a more individualistic out look on life, a subject close to my heart.
A number of issues were raised on the doorstep which I shall be taking up with the three local councillors. I hope to be able to report on these more fully in the near future.
