Once again continued apologies for the blog slacking although this time I do have the excuse for being away for most of a week at a music festival. It was called Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire (see video from it above) – it was all very nice and the sun was shining, but the clientele were definitely a little…err…posher than what I am used to. They we doing £85 long table banquets there cooked by Raymond Blanc (who I stood next to watching Robert Plant). I think that I would honestly combust if I paid that for a meal – that’s 2 weekly shops for me and my Mrs. At festivals, I’m more used to half rice, half chips and curry sauce.
Anyway, since getting back, myself and Cllr Cain had another surgery at Bloomfield East Resi. Assn. – it wasn’t as busy as the last session but we took away a few residents enquiries that we are getting on with so it was still worth while.
I have also attended a couple of meetings to help organise the New Revoe Residents Association Fun Day this Saturday (20th) – see below. If you live in the area, then please do bring the kids along – there’s loads to do – it starts at noon and it won’t break the bank.
This evening, I have done some door knocking along Ribble Road and have taken away a few issues to refer to council officers – I hope that these can be resolved quickly and for anyone that I met this evening, then it was a pleasure to meet you.
I also see that the massive eye sore that was 75-88 Central Drive has now been fully demolished (see photo). I realise that this will be converted into a car park for the short term, but I am sure that you will agree, the Drive looks better without those rotten buildings.

For anyone living on Palatine Road, myself and Cllr Cain have just approved metal alley gates for alleys at the Central Drive and Park Road ends of the road to combat some antisocial behaviour issues in these areas – they should be installed soon.
Anyhoo, drop by soon.
