The event was more spread out than previous events, with the fairground attractions moved from the Green to behind the Memorial Club

Ros Jump and Geraldine Mathieson

With the May 2015 Council Elections rapidly approaching,

deciding how to approach this interview required some thought and preparation, as the editor wanted to discuss what it was like to be a councillor interested and concerned about local politics ahead of the Elections, rather than go into details that would likely cause at least some to skip the content and change channel!

With the election nominations still out, we can’t yet approach all the parties, but would invite them to contact us for an interview if we haven’t already done so and advise that Ros, Geraldine and Lena Slater  will be standing for re-election.

Journalists and teachers share quite a lot of common interests with politicians speaking from experience, as no doubt do many other occupations.

It is unfortunate that a divide has opened up, as getting involved in public service can be exciting and rewarding – especially when you see the results of your efforts experienced and appreciated by others! (see below)

One gets the impression talking to Ros and Geraldine that 99% of council work is organizational stuff like so much other work and that the rewards of all their labours are only occasional – but worth the effort!

Now for the other background stuff, some ‘flat facts’: –

Greening the Green

We are delighted that our campaign here at cottingham.tv to green the green has been taken up and will be added to the Cottingham Community Plan for discussion ahead of the Elections!

Thank you to Christchurch Community Coffee for the best coffee and the room for the interview.
