After a successful local election campaign for the local Liberal Democrat FOCUS Team, it was a bit of a bugger, when I read that the majority on the newly created Gunthorpe ward, had voted in favour of leaving the EU. I certainly realise that people will have a range of valid concerns, but I wonder […]

Council’s Cinema cock-up ends up in the High Court! :(

by Cllr Darren Fower on 28 June, 2016

  Did you read the article the other day in the Peterborough Telegraph regarding the latest goings on regarding plans for two cinemas in the city centre?

#Brexit? 3 points for Boro Peeps to bare in mind!

by Cllr Darren Fower on 12 June, 2016

Yes, it’s a shame that NONE of the 7 Members of the European Parliament who get paid to represent Peterborough, actually live in the city or the Greater Peterborough area.

by Cllr Darren Fower on 3 May, 2016

The group has had the challenge of overseeing the planned budget cuts by the Tory-controlled 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! Especially when it comes to providing support for schools like Norwood, Gunthorpe, Werrington and Welbourne Primary Schools! The other year I was appointed to a special group at […]

by Cllr Darren Fower on 2 May, 2016

What do you think about the idea of asking the Council about putting dispensers for plastic bags on their waste bins? Seems to me that we should of course educate people through signage etc But maybe, we need to also look at supporting them and helping them pick up their dog dirt? I mean while fines are […]
