Stroud Life and The Citizen have just launched a Stroud Community Blog - this is a welcomed addition to our local media that I hope will grow into a useful and interesting place for comment, debate, information and indeed a celebration of our Five Valleys. As one of those being part of the launch of the blog I've just submitted an entry on a favorite topic of mine about 20 mph zones and communities wanting streets not transport corridors.
As the blog notes on Saturday I toured Whiteshill and Ruscombe Parish identifying places for '20 is Plenty' signs - we also had a chance to look at grit bins - where news ones were needed - especially the need to replace the hideous bright blue bins which are some plastic barrel cut in half - and to move the bright yellow one from such a prominent place in the village (see photo) and replace with more attractive wood.
I forgot to mention to mention in the blog the day started with chocolate brownies at the Parish Chair's home - delicious - a perk of getting involved in the local community!!
