West Ham Labour doorstep - Tennyson Road, E15 #selfie

I came back last night from the UNISON National Delegate conference in Liverpool. No rest for the wicked and was out again this morning for a Labour mobile surgery with Cllr Ron Manley, John Whitworth and Julianne Marriot.

The surgery went well. Most residents we spoke to had no complaints and many compliments about Council services in this area. 

Some residents were concerned about street cleansing and late night anti-social behaviour (ASB) by youths in the nearby park. I will speak to the Council ASB unit and the Police Safer Neighbourhood team about what they are doing about this problem and offered to meet with residents.

The #selfie Picture was taken by Julianne's mobile. (I didn't admit at the time that I hadn't have a clue what a selfie pic was)

I know a number of people and businesses have issues with the Council, however, they don't want to waste their time talking to Councillors.

well that is not my experience at all anon.

People on the whole were really pleased to see us and were pretty satisfied with Council services. I think that residents like to see us out knocking on doors asking if we could take up any issues for them. Especially with no election taking place.

A lot of positive feed back on cleaning and domestic rubbish collection as well.
