LibDems save local bus service
In April 2003 FirstBus announced that they were looking at cuttin bus
services. This included the number 32. This bus is a vital link for local
residents in Walkley, Upperthorpe and Netherthorpe.

Local LibDem councillors Jonathan Harston and Steve Ayris wrote to First
and the Passenger Transport Executive demanding that local bus services be
preserved. This summer FirstBus announced that the number 32 was one of
the services thay had decided not to cut.
We've been robbed!
Your local LibDem councillors Jonathan Harston and Steve Ayris want to
know why your area is being denied Council cash.
Labour's Town Hall bosses have announced a new policy of giving money to
so-called 'deprived' areas. Strangely, those areas seem to be almost all
in Labour-held Council wards in other parts of the city!

dumped on Matlock Road
Cllr Steve Ayris said: "As a result of Labour's policy everybody in
this community is losing out. Our streets are getting cleaned less. Our
roads are less likely to be repaired. Our parks will receive less
maintenance. Plans that the LibDem administration put into place for road
repairs and road safety schemes have either been put on hold or cancelled
all together. Our area is suffering under Labpour."
Your local Liberal Democrats are demanding that Labour lives up to the
election boast of making Walkley 'Cleaner and Greener'.
Local councillor Jonathan Harston got several trees cut back that had
grown across pavements blocking the way. Jonathan told Focus:

||Cllr Diane Leek shows how the situation gets out of hand
"Labour is neglecting our communities. I will work with my LibDem
collegues and continue to fight to ensure that local paople get the
service they deserve from this appalling council."
Bad news on South Road improvements
Local residents and local LibDem councillors worked together with council
officers to put togeyher a plan for environmental improvements on South
Road. Now, Labour's new policy on 'deprived' areas has meant that the
scheme has been cancelled, just as the final details were being put into
|Jonathan Harston on South Road
Cllr Jonathan Harston said: "This scheme was about more than just
road safety. It would have improved the general environment of the whole
South Road shopping area. It is a crime that Labour can just ignore the
wushes of local popele in one part of the city simply for politcal gain in
