Welcome to my blog!

It's been a very busy week with Epsom hospital board meeting on Thursday and today, Good Friday, the family attended the walk of witness through Epsom High Street finishing with a service just outside the clock tower. The songs were surprisingly upbeat for Good Friday and everybody was in good voice. I suspect this also was due to the gorgeous sunshine. I would like to wish everybody a very happy Easter!

Some of you may have seen my letter published in the Epsom Guardian regarding disabled parking. For those that didn't get to read it, I would like to share it with you now! 

"It has come to my attention that Epsom council has decided to convert 12 of the disabled parking bays, in the town hall car park, into dual use during off - peak times. Surely it is during peak times that more parking bays are needed by the general public?
I would also like to ask the council why there are so few disabled parking spaces being used? I suspect it is because they are now having to pay for them. In other councils, such as Conservative -run Elmbridge still enjoy free parking and the general public have much cheaper parking than we enjoy in Epsom.
It is obvious that the council has failed to make money from the disabled, surely now it would be better to give them back free parking and get them back into Epsom and making good use of our shops."

However, good news for those using Church Road. After much complaining on twitter, sending emails to the County Council and Surrey Highways, the yellow lines are now put in and this photo is a thing of the past!
