I got back from holiday just in time to help Simon out at the August advice surgery. It was just as well that I did because 18 people turned up! Usually such a turn out suggest a single major issue-typically a phone mast. All sorts of things were going through my mind on this occaison not least of all wheelie bins. The Tories aided and abetted by their uncritical friends at the Visiter have kicked up a Daily Mail style scare. They were confounded. There were 14 different reason why they all came. On closer analysis it appears that because the surgery got better billing in the local press-it being August and not much news.
The first interview was with aman who wanted to say 'thank you' for some case work I had done. The rest ranged from traffic problems to schools via plannig applications & problems with youths.
