Spontaneous Litter pick


Whilst in Mersea Road, Dudley Close , Bourne Court on house calls for casework, (Where people had called on me to visit to talk through problems) I spotted a lot of litter in the area.

It was fortunate that I had my litter picker, and some refuse sacks with me.

Normally Cllr Chris Pearson, Cllr Martyn Warnes, and myself work on the rota week on week to cover the area of Berechurch, but here was a lot of litter needing clearing.

PS – Thank you to the residents who chatted to me whilst I worked .


Abbey Field sewage leak

As a Councillor I had to liaise with local agencies, after a sewage leak in a Colchester beauty spot took more than a little investigation to resolve.

I was contacted by constituents after authorities blamed each other for the sewage leak at Abbey Fields.

Local residents were given the run-around by the Army, Essex County Council and Anglian Water, so I was asked to help.

The works required are booked in and now on-going, after I asked Colchester Environmental Health to get involved due to a perceived health risk.

I hope that, in future, there will be better dialogue between the Army, Anglia Water and Essex County Council.

Its a big Well done Colchester Environmental Health department for ensuring it was sorted.
