LGA First - a day in the life of a councillor

I was very honoured to be asked by the Local Government Association to contribute "a day in the life of a councillor" article for their First Magazine. It was published today and I used the opportunity to promote two of the projects in the area that are very close to my heart.

The online link to the article is here

The magazine article contains this brilliant photo of the Deane Road cemetery taken by the tree-feller as he hung on a rope high over the cemetery wall.

You can see other photos and detail on the Deane Road Cemetery website

(Scouseboy) Purdah??? hats a new one to me!! I thought the time between the last council cycle and the council AGM after the elections was called the "interegnum period." The only committees that met were planning and sometimes licencing. All other matters of urgency were dealt with by the Leader of the council, Deputy Leader and opposition spokesperson.
A very interesting article.

We had another Deane Road Cemetery meeting tonight, we are all getting exciting about the prospect of a Heritage Lottery Bid for this wonderful gem in the heart of the ward.

We are going to be having a big public open day in June and I have promised to sort out the invites and the promotion. Watch this space.
