Nick Palmer on Hustings Galore/ New Endorsements / Borough Elections/ Help the Bus Campaigns/ Walk-in Centres

nick-_palmerNick Palmer writes: Lots to report! First, many thanks to the gigantic crowd that came to the first Beeston hustings event at the Parish Church, where five of the candidates debated a wide range of issues for two hours. Many thanks to the team who arranged it and the neutral chair. Anna Soubry’s only post-event comment was a tweet that it “wasn’t very balanced” – personally I think it was fair and balanced all round, and I’d very much like to thank everyone of all political views who took the evening to attend and stayed without a single departure till the very end.

Tram Works Chaos by Beeston Post Office

Derek Constable writes: Have just returned from beeston post office. Elderly and disabled persons are standing outside the post office wondering how they can get to Devonshire and roads into Chilwell. Meanwhile 6 or more alleged workers stand around doing nothing AS USUAL. Work is going ahead on the solicitors office wall at Devonshire. No work is being done on the pavements there. The road is still closed but no work is being done. Disabled people are being badly looked after by the tram people. Who is going to make these people responsible and get the important things finished. ie pavements and not solicitors walls or do they shout louder than disabled people.

Maybe someone could bring this up at tonight’s election meeting.
