SOMETHING POSITIVE

The main feedback from the few members of the public that turned up to the Town Council meeting in Totton tonight was rather fierce criticism of the authority’s website.

I think that the

website is the “shop window” of an organisation and it should be very easy to navigate and find things like agendas, minutes of meetings, plans the authority has, services it provides and updates. It can also be used to help promote local businesses and events.

It was quite cringeworthy to listen to the public who reminded Councillors that they had said the same thing last year to no effect. Of course, the pandemic is responsible for putting a few things on the back burner.

I am pleased to say the Chairman gave me a call after the meeting and assured me it would be sorted. I suggested some great website builders and operators that the Council may like to employ.

Compare and contrast the present Town Council website with the neighbouring one, Marchwood, as an example :

WELL DONE TEAM TOTTON. Really good to see Team Totton getting recognition for the work they do from the New Forest National Park Authority and other forest organisations.

CONVERTING CONVERTORS The criminal gang that are removing catalytic convertors are busy in Totton once again. I have had a number of reports of people finding that their car has been targeted. It seems it only takes them two or three minutes and they are away. I rather doubt that the police will catch them…

Another great example of community initiatives undertaken by local people.
