I attended Stockton where I did a tour of the outlying offices visiting, Cowpen Depot, Billingham.
It was a pleasure to visit and talk to the staff in those areas who work hard and help Stockton to be one of the top authorities in England.

I attended more of the offices of the authority;-
Again speaking to staff I was impressed with their dedication to the authority. Thank you to all the departments I visited for making me feel welcome.

Attended the summer show at Preston Park, the weather was overcast after a nights rain, this impacted on the numbers that attended in the early stages. This is a shame because a lot of work has been put in by organisers, officers, volunteers, show people and stall holders, I hope the weather improves.
Attended the One Big Family Picnic held in Trinity Gardens, Stockton. This is to celebrate families and community with three aims;
Thank you to Mike McGrother and his volunteers for the invite. Again it would appear that the weather conditions had kept some people away but knowing Mike it will be a fantastic evening of entertainment.
Attended the Tall Ships Rally at Blyth where we were invited on board the ‘Christian Radich’ what a fantastic sight with all these tall ships at anchor in the harbour, it was a privilege to board such a magnificent ship and look around. Thank you to the Captain for our invite we had a great time.
