Try Sailing and Hatwells Funfair


 There will be the chance to have a go at sailing on Sunday 12th May 2019 from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Abbey Sailing Club (off the Wilsham Road). This is an open day for people who want to try sailing.

Just feel free to pop along and they will hopefully get you on the water (weather dependant). There is also a BBQ.
Also this weekend Hatwells Funfair is on. They have lots of stalls and are in Ladygrove Meadow - by the Drayton Road, Ock Bridge.

It is not the end. It is just the beginning.

Thankyou for all your support during the campaign and for your votes. On a day where the Lib-Dems (and their partner Green candidate) were way ahead of all the other parties, we came within 14 votes of returning an Independent in Caldecott.

This is not a time to stop as so many issues has been raised that need addressing. So I will be keeping this website open and trying to campaign on some of these issues.
If others are interested in continuing in such a community action / pressure group, please let me know and I could schedule meetings.

Here are just some of the issues raised while campaigning:

* Need for dropped kerbs in town near the top of East St Helen Street - person was to show me exact location
* Need for places and activities for people with learning difficulties - meeting with person in a few days to find out more even though not elected.
* Parking and pot holes on Wilsham Road makes it dangerous for cycles.
* Chicane cycle passage on Preston Road dangerous for cycles
* Need for school crossing on Preston Road
* Speeding cars down Preston Road
* Cars going on verges on Caldecott Road to drop or pick up children from school. The existing wooden fence is decaying.
* Elderly people need the 41 bus and don't want to loose it.
* More sound proofing needed somewhere ( I have the details)
* Some suggested rubbish bin locations + signs to make sure they are noticed
* Some suggested places where dog mess enforcement is needed
* Pavement cracking (I have details)
* Outside 74 Saxton Road bushes are overgrown - raised on fix my street
* Why not put skips down Saxton Road so people without transport can clear gardens
* Road needs a makeover (I have details)
* Upset old Abbey House might be used social housing rather than benefiting the community
* Railings on wharf need repainting black
* Need more trees in public places
* Town Council should declare its own climate emergency
* Town needs recharge points for electric vehicles
* State of roads bad
