On Tuesday I had a walk around the village and some areas that some residents had concerns with in terms of litter and dog fouling. I quite agree. I have now contacted the Council and they are looking to resolve this but I suspect that I might be organising a litter pick on the Line, if anyone is interesting in joining me. I will get all the equipment, bags, gloves and litter pickers, from the Council. Keep watching for more on this or just email me if you want to get involved. I did do a post on the matter this week too, with some pictures. Here is one of those pictures.

Thursday the Government planning inspector opened up the new consultation for the proposed new houses for Standish. So get writing all your objections in and before the 14th June.

Using the internet is a tool that I like to use to try and communicate with residents and I have just read a great book about online content called, "The New Rules for Marketing and PR". The author is David Meerman Scott. If you are in business and looking to use the internet I would fully recommend reading this book. I was so impressed by it I emailed the Author with some kind words. The result of that was we had some email pinging back and forth and he did a piece on me on his blog. He is a link to it Article of Gareth. Thank you to David for this and the kind words he gave back to me in his emails. Some interesting new techniques in the book that I will be using soon.
Today is a bit of down time and recharge the battery's.
