Action Taken

These may look like 3 normal hooped barriers but to the resident who lives there it has improved their lives locally.
It all started when a local resident of Princes Park visited me at one of our Saturday surgeries a couple of months ago. Amongst a few problems they had, one of them was people parking outside their house, partially blocking their driveway and ruining the grass verge with deep tyre marks.
The result of this situation was Pat and I used the ward funds to pay for these 3 hooped barriers to instantly stop the problems. As a result of this, I received a very complementary phone call from the resident 2 days after the barriers were installed.
Another success story for Pat and myself.
Firstly the monthly surgeries and secondly turning words into action and getting things done!
Ignore the date on the camera, this photo was not taken in 2004 but was taken on the 21st April 2008. I have now finally adjusted the date on my camera!

Maudene School

A couple of weeks ago there was an Ofsted Inspection of Maundene School in Princes Park.

It was designated a 'Good' school in the report to the delight of the headmaster Mr Cutting which was down to good leadership and good management.
The school is held in high regard to residents locally with a good reputation which is also showing in the results which include good behaviour and enthusiasm within the pupils.

Walk in Princes Park

I met up with our PCSO Jess and Angela from MHS this morning to have a look round part of Princes Park. We are hoping to do this on a regular bases round different parts of Princes Park to see if we can help keep it a nice place to live. Of course we did find the odd bollard that needed replacing and the odd bit of graffiti(of course). But what upset us most that one piece of ground that someone had landscaped is now being used as a dumping ground. Can anyone tell me WHY?
