Another nail firmly driven into the coffin of Ledbury as we know it

God help the town - quite definitely about as far removed from the definition of positive as can possibly be

One initiative that is urgent is to fix the damaged face of the town clock at the Barrett Browning Institute library. As a landmark the clock can be seen from afar and to see it broken is a sad reflection on Ledbury as a whole.

Another initiative that is more pressing is to find a permanent cure for the pond that surfaces along Worcester Road, opposite Upper Hall Farm (road) and the private entrance to Upper Hall, whenever it rains.

So will the newly elected town councillor be taking his seat at his first town council meeting this week or not?

Word is that he will not be and due to the nature of his profession unlikely to be at many in the future either - positive choice for Ledbury or self indulgent wannabe with only the interests of a vested few at heart?

I guess the non attendance record will explain much - dreadful appointment and one that this town will rue!
