Re: grass verges

Re: Fanshawe Pool

Sadly this has been coming for several years. People around here vote Tory en masse, and the Tories cut the budget year on year for councils and for schools. In the end, you get what you vote for.

Re: Hertford Regional College - Ware Campus

They've got to make up for all the millions they lost in Saudi Arabia somehow!! Sadly this is what to expect from an institution that respects Ware so little it took the name of a neighbouring town where it doesn't even have a presence.

Re: District Plan Pre-submission Draft

The town is growing slowly, people have more cars, and the infrastructure can't cope. All sorts of infrastructure problems will flow from this, the plan even says that about the town centre but then the planers say screw them let's add 1000-1500 houses anyway. The area will sadly become unliveable.
