With the election just weeks away, I’ve been out warming up the shoe leather again - hearing from locals about what matters to them.
Sometimes it is the big things. Like doing our bit to solve the climate crisis and enjoy the benefits of a low carbon economy.
And sometimes it is the little things. Like cleaning up a grotty corner, or trimming a tree.
But over and over, one thing comes through loud and clear.
People expect and deserve to have their local services, streets and facilities up to a high standard, and to know a watchful eye is kept on Council spending.
