West Ward News Jubilation
The weekend of 3 June will be a time to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. Many res- idents are getting together to hold street parties. Advice is avail- able at www.direct.gov.uk
Instead of closing a road, you can organise a 'street meet': a gathering in a park, drive- way or cul-de-sac.
If you are holding a party, Margaret and Michael would be delighted to come along to say Hello. Grange Primary School is planting a Jubilee tree.
Crime Prevention There have been some unpleasant instances of late-night vandalism in the Grange Road area. Be alert! If you see anything suspicious, call the police at once on 999. Also, keep both your front and back doors locked when indoors or in the garden as there has been a recent walk-in theft.
Superstore litter Residents have complained about the amount of litter among the landscap-
ing on the Morrison's site. Michael met the store manager and was assured that he was aware of the problem. An immediate clean-up was undertaken.
Air Quality Concerns have been raised about the air quality at the bottom of Ferry Lane, around the Dooley Inn. Suffolk Coastal District Council have pro- duced a draft Action Plan to reduce emissions and the effects of air pollu- tion. They should develop practical options to complement measures being undertaken by the Port. There is a consultation: visit www.su
or phone 01394 383789. Deadline for responses is 6 June 2012.
First Anniversary A year ago, Margaret and Michael were elected as councillors for West Ward. They have been determined to keep abreast of problems in the Ward through monthly Street Surgeries. Unfortunately, Margaret broke her kneecap in February and apologises for not having been around recently. We will soon be delivering a newslet- ter and will resume Street Surgeries in June. Meanwhile you can still contact us as below.

As promised, we have arranged a meeting between Felixstowe traders and local council- lors at a forum to be held at the Town Hall on 28 May at 6pm. Further details are available from the Town Clerk. The event is restricted to traders and will be by invitation only.

the properties and rehoused the resi- dents so they could demolish the site and build new properties. Unfortunately Flagship ran out of money and the new build never hap- pened. In the meantime the properties
At a time when we believe such accom- modation is at a premium, we have called for them to be bought back into residential use.
The District Council is considering the use of "Sports Hubs" in Felixstowe. This will require all football to be played on the Eastwood Ho site, rugby at Coronation Sports Ground and cricket at the Town Ground in Dellwood Avenue . Under the plans proposed by Conservative Councillor Geoff Holcroft, Walton Recreation Ground and Seaton Road Recreation Ground would be des- ignated as "public open spaces". The residents of Walton and specifically those residents living in Seaton Road and Recreation Lane should be consult- ed about this proposal before a final decision is made by the District Council.
We are pleased to report that following several requests by us to the District Council, the dead hedgerow bordering Seaton Road recreation ground and Margaret Street has finally been removed and replanted. At last the resi- dents on that side of Margaret Street will not have to clear up fallen trees or branches before they can get their cars out on to the road.
Our surgery this month will be held in Walton Community Hall on Saturday 26th May from 2.30 - 4.30pm. If you have a problem that you think we could help you with, please come along.
