Tour of Test Valley heads to North Baddesley and Valley Park

Since becoming leader of the Council, I have been touring Test Valley getting to know, in detail, the various communities across the Borough.

Last week, my tour took on a cross party flavour - as I was shown around North Baddesley and Valley Park Wards by the new Leader of the Lib Dem Group, Celia Dowden and longstanding Councillor, Alan Dowden. I was able to see the Hoe Lane development site; the new pathway that has just been constructed at Glendowan Road and visit Knightwood Leisure Centre, where we are developing a new building for the local pre-school and intend to work together to try and improve pedestrian access.

Cllr Celia Dowden said: "I welcome the new leader's intention to visit every ward in the Borough. I was pleased to show him the diversity within the North Baddesley ward and discuss with him some of the issues."

Cllr Alan Dowden said" I think the new leader was impressed with Valley Park and I appreciated the opportunity to show him around and talk about ways we can further improve the area."

There's a myth in politics that just because someone is from a different party, then surely we must always be at each other's throats. That's not true. Actually in local politics we often agree and I look forward to working with Celia, Alan and their colleagues to continue to improve the quality of life for the residents of Test Valley.
