TOLL BRIDGE VICTORY

We had a great success at a meeting of the Totton & Eling Town Council tonight.

Council confirmed that they have no intention of making the toll keepers redundant.

I would like to thank the 1000 + people who signed the toll bridge petition.

** CONSERVATIVES’ WASTE OF SPACE ** A tale of two car parks. Two car parks in Totton Town Centre. Photographs taken at 10am this morning. The Conservative controlled New Forest District Council car park is almost completely empty. It’s not earning any money. It’s persuading shoppers to go elsewhere. It’s tempting motorists to park on…
