Several people complained to me in election week about the difficulty in accessing the new "safer" post box on market day. One even blamed the council (what a surprise) for lack of communication.
I can now reveal from a reliable source that Royal Mail did consult with the markets manager, and between them they agreed a place nearby which would have been much more convenient for everyone. Unfortunately this location was not taken advantage of by the installers.
Another site meeting will now take place and we hope for a happy resolution to this embarrassing saga. BUT IT'S NOT THE COUNCIL'S FAULT!
Incidentally, where have my fellow councillors gone? The exchanges seem to have stopped. I wonder if one of them is too busy planning the 3:3:3 formation. As a former "real independent" who has written to the press bemoaning political groupings I trust he will remain the only independent of the three who hasn't been a Labour or Conservative councillor, and certainly not join the Labour, LibDem or joint coalition.
