February 17th 12 noon
Meeting at Church car Park, Blake Avenue, Droitwich
During my year as chairman I want to visit every ward in the district. Councillor Wendy Carter arranged this visit. Wendy, along with Cllr Mrs Stephanie Vale, is the member for Droitwich Spa South West.
Each year and sometimes more often, a walkabout is arranged to pick up on issues within the ward. Representatives from all local councils, the housing association, contractors and other interested parties attend the walkabout.
It was about as bad a day as it could be. Very cold and wet
The discussion here related to vehicles travelling round the bollards and turning the grass to mud.
As if by magic, one of the culprits arrives.
The highlighted problem here, is the tree in the background. It has overgrown to such an extent as to be blocking the light from the street lamp. It is also covering the sensor, which means the light is on all the time, wasting money and energy.
Cllr Wendy Carter with town councillor Edgar Harwood
The problem here is parking on the grass verge.
Flytipping, dog poo and litter are a constant battle. Generally, the estate is well looked after. The problems highlighted by todays walk will be looked into and work to fix the issue put into the schedule.
I enjoyed the walk very much, even though it was extremely cold. We then had a tour of the rest of the ward by car, ending up at St Andrews Hotel for a light bar lunch. An excellent ward visit. I learnt a lot. Thank you.
