From Waterlees To Peckover
Quite a busy day today. First thing was a Finance Meeting at the Oasis Centre in Waterlees, working with the Oasis Trust to try and make sure things stay on an even keel. I am appointed to the Trust as the District Council representative. I rather enjoy the role as the Centre’s staff and the Board Members are all great to work with. As with all community bodies that I know of, these are challenging times, but when people work together good outcomes can be achieved.
Rushing home from the meeting and changing into my full Deputy Mayor regalia, my Wife and I headed to Edina Court care community in Peckover Ward, which is celebrating its Pearl Anniversary this year. I enjoyed lunch with the residents and managers, who were most welcoming and hospitable.
This evening I have two more meetings to attend and I don’t expect to be home until quite late.
