On Monday morning I visited Oakbank School to meet with Governors and the Head. I was delighted to see their impressive new gym, and to see the School farm and dogs!
On Monday evening I attended the LLTC Policy and Finance Committee. Issues that were discussed included the market critical incident policy and the statement of accounts for the last financial year.
On Tuesday I attended the Police and Crime Panel, which included the Chief Constable’s confirmation hearing. I am confident the new Chief Constable, Garry Forsyth, will be a worthy successor to John Boutcher.
On Thursday I attended the General Purposes Committee at CBC. Key issues discussed were the market rate supplement for staff, establishing the electoral review working party and the parental leave working group.
On Friday I had a briefing with the Director of Children’s Services. And on Saturday I was on Street Watch patrol in the town centre.
Looking ahead to the coming week:
- LLTC Full Council – Monday 7.30pm at The White House
- Briefing with Director of Children’s Services – TBC
- CBC Induction for Councillors
