|Waste ground, right next to the High Street|
For the second week in succession I had the privilege of meeting a three-day old resident - a trend is developing here. Not that I mind, of course.
I found overwhelming support for Labour, with no Tories or Lib Dems, and a supporter each for UKIP and the Greens. This admittedly weird snapshot does not fool me - I know that there are many Tories in Milton ward. However, I am convinced that if we could persuade everyone to vote then there would be a v ery healthy majority for Labour.
It was a bit chilly to be sure, but I still was warmly received. Conversation topics included cockroaches, nightclub noise, anti-social behaviour, and that ever present favourite - parking.
There is some waste ground right next to the High Street, at the junction of Chichester Road and Whitegate Road. I have no idea who owns it, but it has been like it for quite some time. It is in a prime position, so something could be made of it I am sure.
