With all the excitement surrounding Manston airport being sold for a £1.00, I'm told I'm on the new airport Cabinet Advisory Group. Quite what it's remit will be I don't know as yet but to quote that well worn expression, "It's good to talk."
Lots of people are becoming very exercised indeed about the new rubbish collection system of multiple bins, which starts next month; I've even been collared on the street. So I have asked for a meeting with the Director of Service at Thanet District Council, Mark Seed, to share some of the many concerns that appear to worry people. I should add though that I'm simply a Shadow Cabinet (CON) member in opposition and the man with the grand plan to date, has of course been Cllr Alan Poole (LAB) so I'm not particularly optimistic that we might see any refinement of the new policy on recycling, whether any appeal to common sense is involved or not.

Fortunately, the event started after the centre closed to the public, so for a while, at least, I was able to wander around and have it to myself, while I waited t deliver my 6:30pm presentation.
With luck, as we dive deeper into winter, I will have some more time to blog but as you will have no doubt noticed, it's very much ad-hoc at present, if only because I have been travelling quite frequently over the last month.
