I need to speak to one or two more people before saying much about what
happened at last night's Wilton Road meeting but it would appear that apathy may
have been the winner.
My meeting minutes are distributed to 20 traders and I have no idea how many people they employ but all of them were invited.
In theory the paper delivery boy from McColls was welcome while I was not.
All I will say at the moment is that my estimate of under 50% attendance was wildly optimistic. I should have gone for 25%.
Estimates vary but about a dozen Council and Police people were there from all sorts of departments in both Councils. Cleansing, Highways, Parking, Community Safety.
They seem to have put some effort into it but no one I spoke to was feeling any better today than they were when I last spoke to them.
