Crime on Stubbs Drive

by Graham Neale on 14 July, 2011

I have had reports of late night attempts to break in through street doors, apparently to steal letters. I’ve been in touch with the local police, and asked them to visit Stubbs Drive after dark.

Parking Control Zone consultation

by Graham Neale on 28 April, 2011

It would be wrong for me to try to influence the responses to the consultation about introducing a CPZ here in South Bermondsey. There is a strong campaign against the introduction, including the posting of notices on some lamp posts around the ward. Of course I don’t condone fly posting, but there seems to be […]

I will […]

Blocked drains

by Graham Neale on 23 January, 2011

The great thing about having local activists is that they report issues before they become a problem. I got an email about the drains on the Long field Estate. Not a very nice thing to post about, but very important if it affects you. The drains outside Dhonau House seem to be blocked, and appear […]

back from Liverpool – casework aplenty

by Graham Neale on 24 September, 2010

Thursday following conference. Still trying to make sense of it, perhaps I’ll return to what happened & what it all meant later. Today I wrote to a load of residents’whose estate lighting was not working. Gonna get the letters delivered in the week. Saw a woman whose neighbour’s house was flooding hers, seems like the […]
