Back to my roots!

This weekend I was in Derby for a friends Thanksgiving service.  I was born in Derby and lived nearby until I was about 2 1/2.  It was lovely to see the places I have been told about - Kilburn, Belper etc.  I have very few memories of my time there but it still felt special.  I didn't get the chance to visit my old house so I think we will all go for a trip and visit the places of my toddlerhood.

Reading is very much my home though, especially Battle ward.  When we moved to Reading we moved to Battle and I live here now.  I love the community and vibrancy of the place.  I am glad my boys will grow up here and go to the same school as I did.  My love for the area is one of the many reasons I wanted to become a councillor.

Battle councillors surgery on Saturday!

On the first Saturday of every month (excluding Bank Hols like New Years day) Battle councillors hold a surgery at Battle library.  We are there 10.30-12.  You don't need to make an appointment and all conversations are treated confidentially.  If you have a comment or concern or would like advice on council matters, please do pop in.  The next surgery is this Saturday 6 August.

Future surgeries are:

3 September
1 October
5 November
3 December
