Happy New Year! I hope you had a good Christmas break. I know you have been aching to get to 2018 so you can vote in the local elections in May, so I’ll get straight down to business 🙂

Today I did a walkabout through Church Hill to talk to residents, look for problems and generally see what is happening around the local area. I was joined by Juliet Brunner who is a councillor on Redditch Borough Council (she leads the group there too), but also a County Councillor on Worcestershire County Council. A very busy woman! I took the opportunity to ask Juliet about the street lights in the ward that people have been talking to me about.

We also took a look at the tree works going on at the bottom of Donnington Close. I haven’t received any complaints about these works, but if there are any problems residents can contact me via [email protected] and I will look into them.

Finally, we walked through the centre and out up to Jersey Close where residents are concerned about ‘rat running’ through the area.
