It’s just a super short blog this week – I don’t have too much to report back on as I have not long got back from a holiday in Romania. I won’t bore you with details my hols other than to say that Romania is amazing – proper stunning and pretty cheap. Recommended – but be careful for bears.
Anyhoo, since getting back at the weekend, here is what I have been up to:
I had a quick catch up meeting with Cllr Cain on Monday to go through the matters arising in the ward whilst I was away.
I then attended a Bloomfield PACT meeting with Cllr Cain – this was a very well attended meeting and it was good to see some new faces in the hall. If you do live in the Bloomfield ward, these meetings are a great way to meet your local councillors, council officers and local beat bobbies (who give regular crime statistics updates for the area). Whilst the crime figures for the ward are always a concern, it was good to see that crimes such as anti social behaviour have gone down compared to this time last year.
Yesterday, we attended a meeting at Ibbison Court to plan the Revoe Residents Fun Day on Saturday 19 August 2017 12pm – please see flyer below. We really have got tonnes of stuff on this year (there’s loads more that just what is on the flyer) and it is free. Please do bring the kids along.
Myself and Cllr Cain then ran one of our surgeries at Bloomfield East Residents Assn. It was quite a quiet one last night, but we did take away an enquiry from a resident regarding planters and trees on their street. It really is pleasing to see residents taking an interest in how their street looks, so Cllr Cain has taken away their enquiry with a view to sourcing some greenery for the street.
Which brings me onto tonight – if you have had a flyer through your letterbox for the Fun Day in the St Kents/Erdington area of the ward tonight, then that was me!

Since my return from Romania, I have dealt with enquiries on issues including anti social behaviour in the hotel area of Lytham Road, alley gates and planning enforcement.
Are you a bit geeky and at a loose end this weekend? Have a look at this – click the link (I’ll be trying to get there myself):
Anyway, until next time folks, as ever, take care, Jim
