Labour councillors plan to merge Telford into Greater Birmingham again

The local Labour Party have been telling us for years that the Tories want to merge Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire Councils and have Telford run from Shirehall. Despite the Tories denying it, Labour have repeatedly slated them for it.

Today we learn that Labour politicians have been planning to merge Telford with Birmingham and the Black Country again, just 6 years after the Conservatives took control of Telford & Wrekin back from Birmingham following a campaign that I started all those years ago.

If it wasn't for UKIP's Cllr Thomas Hoof submitting a question for tomorrow's borough council meeting they would still be negotiating the sale of the borough in secret.

Public meeting on distraction burglaries at Brookside Central on 29th September

Following another distraction burglary in the Burford bungalows recently, I contacted West Mercia Police and asked them to provide some education to residents to combat confidence tricksters.

The police have arranged a meeting at Brookside Central on the 29th at 6pm to talk to residents about home security and in particular keeping themselves safe from distraction burglaries.

I have also contacted Wrekin Housing Trust about physical security measures at the bungalows.
