SO MUCH THAT IS GOOD HERE -WHY BE SO NEGATIVE

Can I make a plea that we stop doing that terribly English thing of moaning, putting down, and writing 'disgusted letters' to the local press? Instead - do more to celebrate what's good here in Loughborough. All councillors and townspeople work hard to make the town a good place to be. Several people I spoke to recently actually choose to come shopping here - one from West Bridgford! Our parks and the Outwoods are lovely, our Leisure Centres, theatre, cinema, and restaurants alive - and while,..

The Bigger Picture

The Bigger Picture

This afternoon, I went to Emmanuel Church at the heart of Southfields ward. I was looking at the work being done on 'The Bigger Picture.' The Big Picture is a world record breaking community picture, comprising of almost 500 panels, each painted by a community group or individual. Together they make up an 80 metre long picture of the Easter story being compiled on the grass outside Emmanuel Church on Forest Road during mid-March. This hasn't just involved Christian groups, and I was told that..

Charnwood Forest Regional Park

Mon 11th February, 2008

Charnwood Forest Regional Park

As it's half term, I decided to take a quick walk round (and up) Beacon Hill this morning. I really enjoyed the fresh air, and it made all the more determined to see that the beautiful countryside that covers our area gains an official designation as a Regional Park. Some people might remember that I raised a motion about getting Charnwood Forest regional park status and I hope to hear some positive news soon.

Parking Concerns

Parking seems to be the biggest issue after housing at the moment. I would like all residents who have a parking issue, especially residents parking to get in touch so that I can raise concerns with officers at the council and to get issues resolved. There is also the ongoing issue of the parking by the train station and I will be raising concerns with Mike Jones our County Councillor about the situation.
