Looking back on 2009

It’s now over six months since I started helping and working with Whitley’s local councillors. Its been a privilege to get more involved in the community.

For example I’ve helped with a petition to get a safer route to school in front of the Northumberland Avenue/Whitley Wood Road shops, and to stop vehicles driving up on to the pavement, which is a danger to pedestrians. The council has now agreed install bollards early in the new year to make it safer for pedestrians.
I’ve attended residents’ meetings and spoken to Government Ministers about the Flooding Bill and unemployment.
 As well as this, I’ve helped the councillors with very specific local consultations on issues ranging from tree planting to tackling anti-social behaviour and been out in all weathers.  During this time I’ve learned a lot and hopefully been of help.
