Pleasant meeting Old Meadows residents, who are staying with Labour, and with Remain. Being with Lilian, the sessions are much more about people greeting her, and national discussion points, which included seeking assurance that should the default become that cars are not parked on pavements, Councils would be able to waive it for streets where that’s not practical; and disappointments with the cuts to arts in our schools’ curriculum. Some extra checks were put into traffic arrangements for the Robin Hood Marathon to ensure Meadows residents were not contained by the race, or queues caused by the marathon. – Photographs available.
