  • Mundesley Children's Centre
    Article: Feb 12, 2018

    Norfolk County Council set its budget today. I spoke out against cuts to Children's Centre Services. Here's the text of my speech. You can also read more here.

    Thank you Mr Chairman.
    I'll begin by confirming that I will be supporting the Labour group's amendment today and I want to briefly say something about children's services.
  • Pothole
    Article: Jan 28, 2018

    Passing Carrow House (a County Council office) round the corner from County Hall last week I noticed a pothole developing round a 'manhole' cover. Couple of hours later walking back from my meeting it had been fixed! Made me think it's time for a Pothole of the Year campaign - what's the longest time you have had to wait for a pothole to be fixed? I'm sure we'll find County Highways are just as quick off the mark for road repairs that are not outside County Council offices!

  • Action on road safety needed for Trimingham
    Article: Jan 15, 2018

    Minutes after I left Trimingham Parish Council last Monday there was a truly scary car crash in the village.

    I was contacted by the resident whose home was hit by the car. I'm told that the driver and passenger were not seriously injured which is good news. The crash has wrecked the garden wall of the property and the car came to rest very close to the house itself.

  • Paston playing field
    Article: Jan 15, 2018

    I'm absolutely delighted to see that the new footpath has been constructed for Paston playing field.

    The work was part-funded from the 'pot' of money I can allocate to Highways works in Mundesley division.

    Local volunteers continue to raise funds for new equipment and I am really looking forward to seeing it when all the work to improve the playing field is completed.
