Have your say on how Coalville's Community Forum Budget is spent

15 community groups and organisations have now submitted their bids for a piece of the 2013 Coalville Community Forum budget of £15,000 to be spent in our local area.

Bids range from a 'Refurbishment of Whitwick Community Coffee shop' through to 'Rugby Development & Creation of New Club Teams' with many others making their case along the way.

The beauty of the Community Forum budget is that YOU can have a say on how the money is spent.

What are the problems on our roads?

Throughout the election campaign the issue which came up again and again was the state of our roads.

Whether it's potholes, needless traffic calming, inadequate lighting or speeding cars you let me know things aren't working.

Now I am elected I want to go to County Hall to argue for better road conditions in Whitwick and Thringstone.

But I need your help.

Please leave a comment here to let me know where and what the issues are and I will make sure they are looked at.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Now it's time to work for you all.

The campaigns are over, the polls are closed and the counting has been done.

I am so delighted and privileged that the people of Whitwick and Thringstone have elected me to be your County Councillor.

For so many of you to trust me with your votes is a great honour, one that I can only try to repay by working hard for you every day.

Whether you voted for me or not my job is to work on your behalf.

If there is any problem that you need help with please do not hesitate to contact me, I am there for you.

The Labour Party has been through difficult times in recent years but I hope that by seeing how hard we work for you locally, how we are on your side, that we are rebuilding your trust.

Once again, thank you for your trust.
