I was often told before I became a councillor that it is the little things that you do which make the greatest difference. Looking back on my time as a councillor these were never truer spoken words.
One of the local things that I took great pleasure in was helping the West Road Community & Traders Association in achieving funding for new planters in the West Road Shopping Area. Many often commented that these help spruce up the area.
I was disappointed to hear that for a second time in as many months the planters have been vandalised with the plants stolen. If anyone has anyone has any information, I urge them to contact the Police as it is a real frustration when the mindless few spoil things for the many.
