Conservative Spring Forum

Spent a brilliant 3 days in London attending the Conservative Spring Forum event, met up with so many new ‘Young Conservative Activists’ really refreshing to hear them extolling the virtues of being a Conservative, wanting to work hard to achieve their goals in life, to get a good education, then get a job that suits their talents, but also wanting to help others to achieve their goals as well

Then on Saturday our Prime Minister, Teresa May updated us on what’s happening with regard to Brexit and the incident in Salisbury, all very encouraging

Confirmed diagnosis at last

Having been feeling ill since April and after months & months of medical tests, I have at last been diagnosed as suffering with Fibromyalgia, very similar symptoms to CFS/ME which is what my own GP thought was causing my problems – I can now focus on targeting this condition head on & with the correct pain relief I’m told I will see some improvement quite quickly and although it is a ‘chronic condition’ and life changing, there are many other people leading active lives whilst having Fibromyalgia and I’m now feeling much more positive about getting back to work in the New Year, yes, I have had to change my lifestyle and to accept I cannot do my own housework, or walk as far as I used to, or carry anything heavier than a can of beans – but I’m still able to drive and that to those who know me is very important to me.

Today’s visit to Thorncombe Village Shop

I’m just back from holding my first ‘surgery’ as District Councillor for Thorncombe at the Thorncombe Village Shop, as soon as I arrived and sat down with my first coffee, there was gentleman needing information, and hopefully I answered all his queries, I then managed to sit outside with a lady for a chat about lots of different issues, and also a ‘catch up with Pauline on ‘Responders’ – then another cup of coffee before chatting to several other people – I also spoke to Phil about the issues with getting the Post Office outreach service started, I have already been in contact the Bridport Post Office (who will be running the service) and have sent numerous emails regarding the ‘telephone line’ problems – I’m also hoping to be able to volunteer at the Shop.

Trying out the kit for the proposed Speed Watch Group in Marshwood

Community Speedwatch 007

After the meeting to form Marshwood’s ‘Community Speed Watch Group’ we had a go with the kit – the picture shows me with the ‘clicker’ counting the vehicles – and the speed checking device is no bigger than a mobile phone – very clever technology
