David comes to town

A visit from David Cameron on Monday. Councillors and candidates met up at the Council House for a pep talk. Not that we need one, things are going very well and the opposition seem very short of resources and ideas. Unfortunately Sue had an accident on Monday night, she slipped on some ice on the decking at the back of the house and we ended up at Selly Oak hospital in the middle of the night. We went through very quickly and were out in an hour after x-rays, some painkillers and a wrist support.
On Tuesday we were at Forestdale School for a meeting of the Community Park project group. Some progress looks likely, the Planning Application goes to the committee on the 24th and we hope to see some work begin after that. Keith was trolling round the local police stations that evening on a Custody Visit. Both Bournville Lane and Kings Heath were quiet but Belgrave Lane was full. Luckily it was finished in time to watch the Liverpool/Arsenal match. Very entertaining.
A busy day today, Sue is off to the Fostering Panel in Yardley, Keith has a pre-agenda meeting to sort out the next Vulnerable Children's committee followed by the Education Committee. This evening he is off to visit a children's home.
