Armed Forces Day

This morning I attended the Armed Forces service on City Beach along with fellow ward councillor Blaine Robin.  It was fantastic to see the space along the promenade, ‘CityBeach’ being used in such a way.  My thoughts were this space has been reclaimed by the residents of Southend. 

 As people strolled past the open air service people stopped to listen, whilst children played in the fountains and the beach got busier from the day trippers, it really was a great atmosphere.

 I believe that the residents need to come first and this area has been regenerated into a vibrant, uplifting area that can now used for so many different things. 

 Councillor Robin and I have spent time at the Civic offices speaking about various safety issues, raising residents questions as we are keen to make sure that this area is used to its full potential.
