Great Weekend in Kent, Budget Setting in Town Hall and Hibs start on Final Stand at Easter Road

I had a very good weekend at Broadstairs with Ian, Joe and Kids and visited Herne Bay and Canterbury Citizens Advice Bureaux and have now volunteered to lok at all the national H&S Policies if they are interested!
met up with Stuart and Jackie Witcher in the famous Eagle Pub In Faversham and they were on as good form as ever!

Back to Council and campaigning work this week and been able to reproduce the brilliant Rotten Boroughs piece from Private Eye which really needs no further comment really does it!!

Budget sting Council Assembly on Wednesday so we had to announce our Manifesto commitment to provide Free School Meals which I think will be a vote winner and a great step forward for Southwark Schools!
All the Lib Dems can think of to do with Rate Payers money is to spend £12Million on our Old Town Halls alongside the £150Million on the new Offices at Tooley Streeet! really shows where their priorities are!!

Hibs lost at Motherwell on Saturday and again failed to keep 11 men on the pitch during the game which cost us dear! Highlights below:

On a much brighter note the work on the final Stand at Easter Road begins at last on the 22nd of February to be complete early next season taking the Capacity upto over 20,000.
Hibs seem to be a well run club and a £4M Training Complex and a new Stand really shows that they are ambitious in the longer term and Easter Road will be the 3rd largest and best club ground in Scotland with the 3rd best team!!

John, Would you like to join the campaign to have the recently closed Gala Bingo Hall restored to its former glory as a cinema and community arts venue. As a local councillor, your support would be very much appreciated.

Details can be found here:
Cinema for Camberwell Green

Please spread the word!

of Course I will suport this!! I have fantasized for years about having it transformed back into a Cinema and am happy to stanrt asking questions with Council Oficers about attracting anyone who wishes to run a Cinema in Camberwell!
Perhaps we should set up a Facebook Site?
