    Conservative figures from a Conservative coalition Executive!!
    Perhaps the error re budget totals is conservative shown on another thread shows this up. We are all being taken as mugs. If I ran my house in this way I would be looking for a camping spot at the Groves.

    So much for having unions to look after their members.. Or do Union officials have free parking.

    Free to vote but the system makes them totally ineffective

    Interesting that there are no pleas at the moment for food and clothes. If they have genuinely relocated surely based on what some people have written before there should still be a demand or have they all now moved indoors.
    What has happened to everything collected are the Salvation Army distributing things.
    There hasn,t been any outcry from any Councilor about any new camps so we can only assume the campers have all dispersed- unless the Councillors have been gagged!!

    They might have moved but the underlying issue over substance related problems in town most certainly will not have gone away. The number of people at the encampment was minute compared with the scale of the issue- remember this was primarily accommodating the Mamba / Spice addict. Heroin addicts generally were not in residence there. As some at the Groves site had tenancies they have now perhaps opened their own front door to others — no doubt at a high price (to feed their own habit) for space on the floor.

    Do families cast off their family member or does the family member cast off the family – there are two ways of looking at this and no matter how much a family may try to help their tolerance levels either break or are breaking point — when it gets to this stage often the pressure causes internal family conflict and other peoples relationships can collapse, this particularly the case when the a child can be from a previous relationship and is not a blood relative to both in a couple relationship.

    Often when someone has cast off their family the new family to fill the void are the other people on the street in similar circumstances.

    The impact on an entire family should not be underestimated when someone turns to substances — it is therefore unfortunate there is virtually no support for other family members even though with the right support they could be part of the solution to help someone out of the world of substance misuse.

    This is a purrrrfect location — it has the largest cat scratch pole in the country.
    Perhaps Cats Protection would like to link with a homeless person and rehouse the cat and person- this could be a purrrrfect solution to an imperfect problem.
