  1. It was a joy and opportunity to be asked to share my views on the current state that New England and Millfield is left in by our City Council and those organisations which has the power and ability to chjange and clean up these areas in order to improve the way of life for residents and businesses alike.. However the following day after the BBC Radio Broadcast I recieved a call from Cate Harding (Neighbourhood Managering Officer) explain that the City Council is now looking into locating the owners of siad land and will be sorting out the clean-up.. I explained to Cate Harding why I firstly gave up my position as representative in Streetleaders, Neighbourhood Watch and Community Crime Fighters on the grounds of these organisations are suffering the lack of devotion, lack of support for those who volunteer their time and services and reminded Cate that for these groups to regain trust from us the community – they must revamp their plan of action, take on these issues as priority issues and spend the moneys funded by the government WHERE IT IS NEEDED.. As I found, these groups are important and needs the volunteers in order to make it work 110% otherwise it is a complete waste of time, money and energy.. It has taken me 2 1/2 years saying the very same thing with NO prevail.. Hopefully now, with it going to the media and to the Full Cabinet in December 2010, that the fire is lite and we the public and the cause for our involvement will be looked at more seriously – most of all – our city will be cleaned and policed in the way we pay for with the money and taxes we fork out.. Just wait and see.. Faithfully Yours, Lord Kenneth T. Montgomery-Moore
