Spring in the Air

Today has been a lovely sunny spring day, the kind that lifts the spirits no matter what is on the agenda. The spring bulbs which we arranged to have planted as part of our small environmental improvements are looking wonderful - hosts of golden daffodils along roadsides, swathes of purple and white crocus and the green of the grass. A very visible sign of what some of the money was spent on, and I'm pleased with the result. I hope residents are too. The photograph of Durham Lane was taken by my colleague, Cllr Alan Lewis.
There was a meeting of the Fairtrade Steering Group today which gave a chance to reflect on the successes and disappointments of Fairtrade Fortnight in Stockton as well as starting to plan for the coming months. A stall in Preston Park during the Greener Living Roadshow on June 8th is the next event so watch this space for more details.
