  • Who you Gonna Call? Grotbusters!

    One of the most regular complaints we get from residents is in the amount of rubbish and graffiti in our streets. It’s ironic that the Council gets criticised so often for litter and fly tipping, or in the unpleasant graffiti around when it’s people in the area who are responsible. There’s an interesting concept, “broken…

  • Firebugs

    Last weekend we saw a huge fire at Hotpoint, where £2 million pounds worth of spare parts that were stored  in container lorries went up in smoke, was a terrible, deliberate fire that should never have happened.  Thankfully police have made arrests and enquiries continue.         This is not the only problem…

  • Health Scrutiny Committee – a pair of willing substitutes!

    When you live close to the city centre and have retired recently from full-time work, it’s not surprising that you can get asked to fill in for fellow Councillors if they cannot make a particular meeting.  This week we were both called to take the place of others due to a double booking and sickness,…

  • Community Clean-Ups Dealing with Drug Waste .

    As we reported in our last newsletter, we continue to see the abuse of illegal drugs in our community.  Woodston In Action Volunteers have been provided with equipment and awareness of needles so they can be safe when clearing up litter where drug waste is also found.  On the other side of the river, volunteers…

I taught French at The Peterborough School for 17 years, and was also Head of Sixth Form. Before moving to Peterborough I…

  • Proud of Peterborough

         It is rare to see our community united and gathering together to commemorate sacrifice, but Armistice Sunday showed our community, sincere and united in remembrance of the sacrifices made for us by our forebears. There were a number of projects by local communities and schools reflecting on the centenary of the end of…

  • At last, Enlargement of Woodston’s Public Space Protection Order is up for consultation.

    It’s been over a year since I reported to Woodston in Action that I had been pushing for the Council to expand the Public Space Protection Order area in Woodston beyond the Recreation Ground. Residents have been complaining for some time about drug abuse, street drinking, littering and graffiti that has been blighting parts of…

  • Nasty Neighbours?

    I’ve never been on the receiving end of a neighbour from hell, but I have experience of local residents living next to anti-social neighbours who make their lives a misery.  There’s a particularly toxic type where I have been asked to intervene, and that is when a street is blighted by drug dealing from a…
