A big well done to the Dumpton Park Drive residents who had a clear spell between the showers to hold their Summer Fete this afternoon on the 'village green' that TDC failed to get adverse posession from Land Registry.
Over a hundred people turned out and it was good to see at least 6 Councillors there and of course the residents' MP, Dr Steve Ladyman. In a brief speech he declared his support for the village green and open land case the residents are making and was disparaging about TDC's handling of the situation so far. Like many he clearly thinks that TDC needs to re-think and go back to their original idea of selling the probably land-locked scrubland by the railway to residents.
I am delighted to report that not only has a point been made to TDC, if it has the sense to see it, but perhaps more importantly, £187 was raised for Guide Dogs for The Blind.
