Romsey, Hampshire, is a small Hampshire Market Town located six miles from Southampton. Its town centre clusters around the famous Norman Abbey and it has a large and characterful Conservation Area. Its suburbs are thus under very significant development pressure as residents from the nearby South Hampshire conurbation seek out the market town experience and move into the catchment of the town's excellent primary and secondary schools.
Romsey's County Councillor, Mark Cooper, has agreed to contribute £2,000 of his Councillor's Devolved Grant budget to a scheme to support Hampshire's most vulnerable families.
Hampshire County Council has established a centralised pot for distribution to local welfare centres across Hampshire via 'Community First', on the basis of need. This follows a request from Hampshires Chief Executive, John Coughlan, to Councillors, asking them to support the Community First scheme.
Another Lib Dem Council in Hampshire introduce food waste recycling
Portsmouth City Council, run by Lib Dems, has recently introduced food waste recyling. Currently, 40% of the city is now eligible to collect and recycle its food waste rather than sending it to land fill.
The only other Hampshire authority that recycles food is Eastleigh Borough Council, strangely enough also run by Lib Dems. Is there a pattern here?

"Many vehicles are travelling much too fast on Romsey's suburban roads," says Romsey's County Councillor, Mark Cooper. "It is time that the Hampshire Constabulary stamped down on the rash of speeding on the emptier roads. The whole aim of the lockdown is to protect the NHS from being overwhelmed. Road traffic injuries increase exponentially if speed is involved. Surely, therefore, it's in the national interest to police speeding."
