I managed to spend a little time in the Queslett Nature reserve before the downpour.
I try and keep an eye on the reserve and while I am there do a little litter picking.
Its a lovely place and thanks to the Friends of the Queslett Nature Reserve it gets regular litter picks.
Sadly due to all the recent rain some of the paths are a little water logged ( you need stout shoes to take a walk in the reserve at the moment, but hopefully some minor drainage works can help sort that out later in the year.

I was pleased to see some catch up tree pruning has begun in Oscott there is still a lot to do however to catch up on weather delayed work.
Different trees are pruned differently and it has been agreed if there are any concerns an inspector will at the appropriate time take a look.
Sadly some further delay is taking place where cars need to be moved from below the trees being pruned. These trees may have to be done at a later date in some cases.
Pruning is likely to carry on through out the spring and early summer.
At the end of the process officers will be happy to discuss any concerns with local residents.
Thank you to all those who came to my Councillors surgery yesterday. I will do what I can to help but as I explained in these days of deeper and deeper Government led cuts may issues will not be easy to deal with.

Have been trying to get a number of grot spots cleaned up this week. For example the Sarsdale Road to Brushfield road right of way, the Lingfield Road to Tresham Road Right of way and the bushed area near the Kingstanding Library for example.

Meeting our fellow Oscott residents is something Councillor Barbara Dring and I do every day because WE LIVE in Oscott and being a councillor hear is not just a job to us.
We do not pretend to have a magic money tree or to solve all the issues we hear about but we do what we can to help our fellow residents during these times of constant government cut backs.
We do our best to tell residents as it is.
