Council money woes …….. will continue!

by Cllr Darren Fower on 3 May, 2016

Over the last couple of years, myself and Cllr Nick Sandford have been part of a ‘cross party budget working group’ at the council.

The Liberal Democrats have certainly got a lot of stick for taking part in the coalition government between 2010 and 2015, but, it was certainly not all bad!

by Cllr Darren Fower on 2 May, 2016

From speaking with local residents who live along Fulbridge Road in recent weeks, its seems that the issue of traffic remains a major concern for local residents.

Thanks to Liberal Democrats, Primary schools like Gunthorpe, Norwood, Welbourne and Werrington have received hundreds of thousands of £’s to help them raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils […]
