Happy Birthday Sir Nicholas Winton, 105, honoured today

Posted by davidburbage on October 28, 2014

I was on the train from Paddington to Maidenhead just last week, and I overheard a lady nearby say to her fellow passenger “where is the statue at Maidenhead station”? She knew there was a statue, but she didn’t know where it was, or of whom the statue was.

I briefly explained – and hopefully now the lady not only knows where the statue is, but will understand why the statue is there.

With credit to Cllr Derek Wilson, who made it happen.

Nice to be picked out of the crowd!

 

Britain’s best councils

The Telegraph’s Max Davidson highlights 20 councils which he says deserve a pat on the back for good local services. The list includes Norfolk County Council – because of its “Get into Summer campaign, Uttlesford DC – which is recommended because of its planning policy, Fylde DC – due to it winning Britain in Bloom, Kensington and Chelsea – thanks to its parking and waste services, and Wiltshire Council – because it has not increased council tax for the past four years, but kept leisure centres and libraries open. The other councils referenced are: South Tyneside; Waverley; Cheshire West and Chester; Sandwell; Newport; Sheffield; Windsor and Maidenhead; Staffordshire; Somerset; Hammersmith and Fulham; Runnymeade; Oxfordshire; Richmond-upon-Thames; Wandsworth; and Westminster.
