Bridge ward monthly report 37

IMG_5137c0440h Bridge ward traffic sign
Three roving surgeries this month – from which we learnt, if you ask about current concerns in The Meadows in the Autumn, the reply is often going to be trees and leaves.
Most exciting news is Trent Bridge cricket’s offer to provide a new programme of cricket at the Meadows Recreation Ground, and to finance a new and larger cricket pavilion to support it. The iron columns will be taken from the current pavilion to carry forward its spirit into the new.
Elsewhere, events have been more challenging. MPT are being challenged over their hopes to continue running the Embankment pub. Nottingham City Homes have had to respond to sustained complaints over the decommissioning of homes along Arkwright Walk. And I was challenged over traffic signs put up to direct traffic to “Bridge ward” – I was able to require the questioner to withdraw the spurious and erroneous allegation.

It went down very well with the kids, although obviously, the teenagers were a bit keen to say they could see through the tricks – ooh they grow up so quickly.

Some more people may now join the committee.
