Despite it being August, when we’re told things are meant to slow down, it has been a busy couple of days for me in Rothwell.
I’ve visited the Rothwell and District Live at Home initiative that offers a friendship and support service for older people still living in their own homes. There’s some great work going on largely carried out by an army of local volunteers giving up their time to help others.
Then it was the John O’Gaunts residents’ meeting. After I was elected I’d already taken a look at tool hire scheme, the wonderful polytunnel and allotments, but it was great to hear more about what’s going on and the great work that’s being done on the estate by residents, I’ve already promised some of my MICE money to the teatime club.
It was then rapidly onto a very interesting and informative meeting with Inspector Yvette Hammill at Rothwell police station. I’ll blog more about this at some other time as I know that crime is something that lots of local people are concerned about and come to my blog to find out more – you can see what words people use to search for in order to find it.
Finally I was pleased to be present when the RHS judges arrived in Woodlesford for the Britain in Bloom judging. Despite heavy rain, thunder and even hail stones, they received a very warm welcome off the train and were given a presentation about the truly wonderful work which Woodlesford in Bloom has done, which is evident for us all to see. All the best of luck in the competition Woodlesford!
