What's slightly dis-heartening - is to see that Meg Hillier (our own MP) has not added her signature - despite being copied in to many emails detailing our concerns. I know that Neil has had a reply or two from her about the spotlights, but she has always been strangely silent about the noise & dust pollution - I'm sure she has her reasons.............
Anyway - thanks to everyone who wrote off all those letters - what seems like many weeks ago now - 40 is a very good result!!! Those of you that follow the doings & don'tings of Parliament will know that to get this amount of signatures for a very local issue - is fantastic!!
It's all the more sweet - as the ODA seem to be listening to us at the moment - but that doesn't mean that we should ever be complacent. There is still a very long way to go!
But the most impressive thing is that we are attracting the right sort of attention - by going through the right channels. Don't be put off by our won MP completely ignoring us - who knows what kinds of lobbying she's getting in the House - we will just have to go it alone - as we always have done!!
