574 – The title comes later

I have to say that in general, the council does a reasonable job of keeping Gosport looking OK. Their gardeners are clearly dedicated to the cause, and over the last few years, when the hanging baskets go up I have seen the same two chaps tending them during my morning walks. Nice to see.

I don’t have much interaction with the council I have been to one meeting which I found interesting, and I would like to go to more, but I have been lacking the motivation to do so. I suppose it’s a case of focussing on an area of interest and following up on that, An example of this was a recent meeting of a committee that would be involved with the installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Points across Gosport.

I did have my first attempt at submitting a question to the council, but I didn’t follow the absolutely correct protocol, and I have to admit I didn’t ask the right type of question. In retrospect, and not unreasonably, my question was rebuffed. I could have had another go, but I felt that my fingers were a little bit burnt and I would have been too embarrassed to attend.

The matter of the EVCPs was presented to the Community Board, and I guess it makes more sense to focus on that that any other committee, except perhaps the full council. The next full council meeting is the 30th, and it looks like the calendar has not been populated after April so I don’t know when the next community board is due to take place.

Partly, this does all speak to an aspiration I had to attempt to become a Town Councillor, however I think I have had a change of heart as the whole thing strikes me as being way too much hassle. Instead I think I would like to be a reporter on council activities – yes that seems much more interesting. I’ve been searching for a local paper that reports on activities that take place in Gosport involving the councils. We used to have a very good online free paper. Sadly that closed, and I am having difficulty finding anything. Perhaps not a lot worth reporting in the town happens – except some crime?

I shall keep looking. Now I couldn’t think what I was going to write about, hence the title of this piece. Then I published it, when I should have changed it to something like The Council, but I think I will leave it as it is – much more interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
