I wish all Conservative candidates in tomorrow’s local elections well at the polls.
The Council has kept the Council Tax down for the last two years, which has been a welcome relief given the pressure on individual and family budgets.
The new waste scheme is settling in, and provides a new weekly collection of recycling materials, as well as maintaining the weekly collection of other refuse. I hope others are finding as I am that the new blue sacks are large enough and strong enough for the job. The extra recycling collection is a welcome improvement.
We need a Council which will spend wisely, seek value for money in all it does, and keep the bills down. I have as always found it most interesting to hear many views from the doorstep during the campaign.
