The Marl Ward
One part of the job I really enjoy is getting out and about meeting residents on the Ward. The best way to meet residents is when delivering Ward News Letters. Today whilst out delivering I must have spoken to around 30 people and picked up a few issues to resolve along the way. Whilst delivering Victoria Crescent I had the chance to bump into a constituent that I knew was a great Gardener and shows vegetables and flowers in many Horticultural shows. I asked if he had anything on the go at the moment and he invited me into his garden. What a little oasis it was with Leeks 4ft tall and this Dahlia the size of a football, he also had some beautiful gladiola.
Sorry to ramble on but as I said I do really enjoy walking the Ward, if not delivering leaflets I take "Jelly" our dog for a walk.
Some messages of good will regarding my appointment at the Walton Centre were also made today as well as a concern from a resident about a neighbours mental health, you really do not know what's coming next. That said I have enjoyed getting out and about and hopefully getting a little fitter!!!.
