Politically and Socially, there is a disconnect that needs to be work on urgently. This is just after a a couple of hours listening to what some of the people of Ladywood had to say.
Some pointed out that it was refreshing to see someone willing to talk with them and ask their opinions. Its not unusual for me, as I do believe in obtaining the opinions of the residents in order to fully understand their issues as everyone is an individual and they do have their own needs.
One thing they did point out that decisions are being made and things are happening around and many claim that they have not been consulted.
Clearly this is a work in progress and the key message from today's short walkabout is to listen to what the people of Ladywood have to say.
