Timetable Fiasco

Vanessa McPake helped residents at Kingston as the Tory run Council put up the wrong timetables when they cut bus services recently!  She got them fixed.  The cuts and the new bus times are hurting lots of residents in our area.  Lib Dems want to reinstate your lost services.

Vanessa McPake checks that the right timetable has at last been put up at Kingston.

Kingston Library – Have Your Say

MK Council are starting to design the new Kingston Library on the site of the old Tavern Pub.  Residents are invited to take part in community workshops so you can have your say.

For example: How much space for a toddlers area, for computers or displays?  Do you want space for meetings or advice sessions?

What is prioritised will depend on what you say so please do take part.

The nearest workshops to you will be on:

  • Tuesday, 16 July from 7-8pm at Walton High, Fyfield Barrow, Walnut Tree, MK7 7WH
  • Saturday, 20 July from 2-2.30pm at Oakgrove Leisure Centre, Venturer Gate, Middleton, MK10 9JQ

You can also see more on the MK Council web site at: http://www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/library_services/displayarticle.asp?ID=91839

There'll be more space in the new library!

Lots of Landscaping!

Subhan Shafiq and Jenni Ferrans have been checking out the overgrown landscaping in Monkston Park and Kents Hill.

They have demanded this grass is cut back on the  roundabout at the junction of Plaistow Crescent and Maida Vale, as well as the grass near the flats.

 

There's a roundabout under there - honestly!

But there was some success at last!  The grass outside the care home in Kents Hill has been added to the grass cutting schedule.

Parking Problems on Lindisfarne Drive

The Conservative council has refused ALL the proposals to improve parking made by the Parish Council recently.  Now we need your help.

On Monkston, almost all residents supported the proposal for double yellow lines on the inside of the bends on Lindisfarne Drive, so now we want you to send us your experiences of the problems there, so that we can make clear to MK Council how bad it is.
