February Column: Councillor Gill Hellier

We hope that you have all survived the snow and ice without too much hardship and are looking forward to the first signs of spring which are starting to appear in the gardens. Councillor Gill Hellier

I did enjoy, during the very cold spell, seeing the fieldfares strip the cotoneaster and pyracantha of all their berries.

The demolition of the civic buildings in the town centre is nearly complete and we look forward to watching the new site grow.

We realise that it is a very hard time for shops and businesses in the town but we must try to be positive and not be too influenced by the “doom and despair” brigade that appears at times, to take over the town.

The end result will be a huge asset for the town in the years to come.

The Town Council is hosting a community networking event on February 26 at St John’s hall  and we look forward to meeting the vast number of volunteer groups, who make the town such a  caring place to live.
