I have been contacted by a number of residents about the recent parking chaos in Langold.

Over the May Day bank holiday, I understand that there was traffic gridlock, preventing people from accessing their homes with buses getting caught up in the jam.

Thank goodness no-one needed the emergency services.

I want to assure residents in Langold that I will be looking at this issue very closely and plan to call a meeting so we can work together to sort this problem.

The rollout of Universal Credit since the end of last year has an increasing demand on the food bank as families cannot afford to eat.

Please do not forget about donating to the food bank whenever you can for those in need.

This week, the food bank is in need of tinned custard, rice pudding, tinned fruit, dilute squash, UHT milk, sugar, coffee, gravy granules, soap, shaving foam, men’s toiletries and washing up liquid.

If you are able to, please donate items to my office on Stanley Street in Worksop.
