Looking back on my blog I am horrified, but not surprised to see that the last entry was in JANUARY when I got snowed in. Those who know me will realise I haven’t been snowed in, but for those who don’t, I haven’t, but been busy being made redundant by the Isle of Wight Council! Yes…..with the swingeing cuts that most local Authorities are facing at the moment, the Island LA felt given that we weren’t quite meeting the grade!!!!! (?????) this was a saving they were well justified in making.
The latter comment has been taken to task given the huge amount of projects we have been delivering which were and are meeting local, regional and national targets.
Sadly the Isle of Wight Council has never really had a full understanding of what Community Rail Partnerships do, and feel that we just put flower boxes on platforms. Hmmmmm.
Never mind. With all of that firmly behind me and the partnership, (minus council) have gone on to become probably stronger than before, without the endless red tape and bureaucracy that sometimes hold back good ideas and logical, local, strategic solutions.
So….I will endeavour now to update you as to where we are….where we are going and….how we will get there with your help!
This is so terrible! I have been so so so busy, I have missed a year!!!!!
