We forgot to tell you that Sue is joining one of the Fostering Panels. These decide on who should be foster parents. We are desperate to recruit more foster parents, both long and short term, but safeguarding of children is the first priority. Perspective foster parents have to go through a lot of checks and training and it is an exercise in perseverance. They are a valuable resource and we must look after them as much as possible.
Sue was also on the licensing panel which heard the complaint against the Nightingale Club. Although this is a gay club Sue listened to the evidence and concluded it was not a gay issue, just one of a developer trying to get its own way against a long established smaller business.
This week Keith is off to Bournemouth for a conference of the Assoc of Directors of Social Services until Friday when we are taking the campervan to Wem for a beer festival over the weekend.
Sue has quite a few meetings this week including the Forestdale Community Park Project, Licensing Committee and a couple of others concerning projects we are committed to but don't want to disclose yet. No point in giving the opposition a heads-up as we know they read this site.
