ON Wednesday I attended a monthly paper shuffling, paper flapping, box ticking meeting, otherwise known as the Lyme Regis Town Council public meeting. What a disappointment!
The councillors on the top table looked bored and uninterested in the public’s concerns and worries. The mayor looked as though she was struggling to stay awake.
The two shining lights were Derek Hallett, who voiced a few of his concerns, and the passionate and enthusiastic Jeff Scowen. Snub out these two and you will be left with very bored looking representatives who the public will have no faith in.
If this is the best they can offer then heaven help us! It’s no wonder that few people turn out to vote. What a shame.
