Long time no hear

It has been a long time since we last posted but it has been a very busy few months in respect of supporting the communities of Braunstone Town and Leicester Forest East.  The meetings of the respective Councils continue to be held via Zoom which is a format that I personally quite like.  We have been busy recruiting another team member and I am pleased to say that Jude has joined our unique team.  We are actively looking to recruit an additional team member to work evenings, so if you are looking to join a diverse and friendly team based on the Branstone Town/Leicester Forest East border please drop us a line.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes
Jude on behalf of David

You Can't Mop it up

I’ve been paying close attention to the behaviour of my fish recently and they certainly appear to be spawning. According to the information I received, fish require something soft to lay eggs on. You can find a number of specialised nests in aquatic shops, but I’ve heard an idea of using a mop head instead. All being well, this isn’t a joke but a legitimate suggestion. If not, I am sure the fish will find some other use for it.

Today I’ve been busy in councillor mode working on a complaint file on behalf of a parishioner. The complaint is complex, but I enjoy the challenge and I will ensure that with the support of my team we will give the complainant the best possible chance of winning.

For the last few weeks, I’ve been busy working on the garden and planting flowers, fruit trees and shrubs. The garden is looking far more colourful than any of the previous years and now I’ve been here for 7 years. My garden definitely benefited from lockdown restrictions. 

Luckily, garden centres remained open for most of the time during the Covid-19 pandemic as visiting them is a therapeutic experience.

Lockdown Part 2, Leicester, Weekly review Friday 10.07.2020

Lockdown Part 2, Leicester, Day 10

Just as there was a glimmer of hope that life can return to a degree of normality, Leicester and some of the neighbouring districts were placed under a second pandemic lockdown.

For the majority of people who closely followed the government advice in respect of social distancing and cleanliness and all the restrictions imposed by the government, we were hoping to be now moving forwards and returning to normal. But the minority of people chose not to follow the rules and regulations and consequently we are back in lockdown.

There are also reports that outbreaks occurred in many of the 1500 clothing and textile factories within the lockdown areas whereby people were either unwilling or unable to follow the guidelines which therefore put everyone else at risk.

Yesterday Support Worker Monika and I encountered a young couple sharing a romantic moment (kissing) whereby one person lived on one side of the motorway bridge which is in lockdown Leicester Forest East and the other person living in the safe zone of Leicester Forest East as the M1 literally splits the Leicester Forest East area in half which is causing more anxiety and frustration amongst the parishioners I have been elected to serve.

In other news, this week my team and I continue to support a local businessman with a problem and we have been liaising with other businesses and service providers to reach a conclusion.

A Mountain to Climb

Weekly review 3rd July 2020

My team and I are currently representing a local businessman with an ongoing dispute. I’m fortunate to have a very experienced complaints handling and investigations team managing the dispute and therefore my health status is being largely protected by my closest advisors.

The way in which my opponents underestimate me always makes me laugh. They all too often assume that a guy with a brain injury couldn’t possibly know very much. But I like a challenge and always feel good when the opposition lose. As my team and I head towards an inevitable victory, with the opposition having a white mountain (Mont Blanc) to climb just to reach first base one can’t help but smile to oneself and be proud of one’s team.
