One of the most important events in the town centre each year is the annual Remembrance Service which, because of the numbers of attendees, takes place in Trinity Square. This year’s event took place on 13th November and there was a tremendous turn out to remember all those who gave their lives for our country.

Our uniformed youth groups put on a great show to make us proud of the young people of the town. But what let the town down? The litter in Trinity Square and the rest of the town centre. I believe that the contractor working for the City Council is supposed to clear the litter from the Trinity Square end of the town first thing in the morning seven days a week. Well not that Sunday! The service started at 10.45 so there was plenty of time for the work to be done, so what happened?

Our City Councillor, Ian Roberts, has taken this matter up with council officers to make sure that the clearing of litter is vastly improved. We will keep you informed on this issue.

On a more positive note congratulations to the local branch of The Royal British Legion for once again arranging a really impressive event, well done.
