The flag is flying!

South Tyneside's listening Council

At last England's St. George's flag is flying proudly above the main entrance to South Shields Town Hall, after a flurry of emails between myself and Council Leader Paul Waggott. The Borough is now officially enjoined with the countless thousands of other supporters of the national football team as they set out on the quest to return the World Cup to England.

There is one thing that can be said (at times) about the present Labour Council, they are prepared to listen, and act, if necessary. The real problem here, of course, is, if we have nothing to say to them they will have no need to listen. Your Councillors were elected to represent your views and at times they do need to hear them, they are all very accessible these days, either by telephone or email.

You can find a full list of them - here.

We'll put this issue down as a small victory for the little man behind the counter!
