Stuff I am doing….
Rapid Update…..if you’re interested :)
My To-Do list/Stuff i’m working on…
o Free Parking For Monton
I live in Monton Village, on the outskirts of Manchester,its kind of a bit like Harry Potter…and metro trendy at the same time..its a nice enough place….quite sweet
for the last few months we’ve been under duress, plagued by traffic wardens, parking charges and random changes in parking regulations…the city council appear to be using Monton as a cash cow..whilst Monton traders are going out of business…not to mention the number of us living locally who have had to remortgage their houses to repay Parking fines…
Traders and residents, with a little help, have turned to social media to fight their cause.
In order to get Salford Council to hear their cries, they’ve put together a campaign video, and started a Facebook Page.the video is at the bottom, 18 shopkeepers and residents took part , most of them had never been filmed before…I was at some of the filming and it was great to see people overcome their shyness t speak up…
please go and hit the @like’ button, show Monton villagers and traders they’re not on their own…
