Good morning Wednesfield! Wednesday 4 August 2021

Good morning Wednesfield Wednesday 4 August 2021
I thought that I would give you a brief update on the issues that have been brought to my attention this last few days.
A water leak running down Ecclestone Road- reported to the Authorities.
I have reminded the City Council that it is Battle of Wodnesfield anniversary over 5th and 6th August, our history is important, not only because this battle gave our Village its name, but the battle was very significant nationally. Some suggest that if the Vikings had won, and then governed the whole of the country through heir Danelaw. We would be ordering our drinks at the bar in Danish now not English!
I have asked that the Highway team take a look and inspect the tree canopy between the Millbank St junction with Kitchen Lane as the street lights are being impeded by the strong growth of the canopy. I will report back on their findings. I have asked them to check the lamp light from that junction to the Essington Boundary.
Since the month of June, the biggest number of contacts reported to me around the environment. Some 53 issues are under that report or have been dealt with. This is a bit of a surprise as housing issues usually grab the top spot. Housing from my latest data is in second place with 27 cases, Public Health is third with 7 cases.
Your three Councillors Rita Potter, Mary and Phil Bateman are working on giving support to a Volunteer Group who are well established, and arrange help for parents with school uniform . We are hoping that in the next few days we will have some positive news around this issue.
Have a great day Wednesfield North!
