We want a public site like this so we can share news of council events, our opinions on topical matters, and attempt to get more people interested in local politics. We’d love to connect to Rushcliffe residents, local Labour Party members, and anyone interested in making decision making an open and inclusive process.
We hope with the help of this site we can get more people to come forward at local elections, to stand as Councillors, and to engage with their community to make a difference.
Use of the site we created has been gifted to the constituency Labour Party to share views and grow our movement.
This month has been quiet since I have been receiving some excellent treatment for a relatively minor problem from both dermatology and ophthalmology at the QMC. The staff were so skilled and very kind, and the management and coordination between the departments was exemplary. I am telling you this because I am sad that at … Continue reading November 2021 Report

Weeks 3 and 4 as a County Councillor I’m pleased to say I have been put on the Health Scrutiny Committee and the Environment and Transport Committee, which are areas that I have a strong interests in. Day to day I have had lots of emails from residents about highways. And I have learnt just … Continue reading The First Council Meeting
We had our Labour Group AGM last month and there have been some big changes in our group. Firstly we need to congratulate Penny on her election to Nottinghamshire County Council. She will be representing the people of West Bridgford North and we feel very lucky to have a county representative in our group making … Continue reading Changes at RBC

Turn out and vote this Thursday 6th May: show our council that you are paying attention to what they are doing in Radcliffe and Gamston
Nottinghamshire County Council is failing to deliver on targets for environment, and it’s not clear that the current Councillors really care about actually making things better. Councillors like to be seen planting a tree here, or opening an electric charging point there, but when it comes to it: these are just small, corporatised attempts of … Continue reading We Need Councillors to Represent What We Want for the Future
Affordable housing is in short supply, and there are plans to build as many as 1000 homes in Radcliffe which will dramatically affect life in the village.

For many years the need for school places in Rushcliffe has been growing and schools have struggled to keep up. With so many new homes being built, it has got to the point that many children are now unable to get into their local school and are having to travel out-of-area, away from their friends. … Continue reading New Schools on Regatta Way
The Health Centre in Radcliffe is already too small, and with 1000 homes due to be built in the next few years, everybody agrees that we need an expanded facility. New, modern Health Centre facilities would be really great for Radcliffe but it is really important also to think about where it should be and … Continue reading Our Council Should Support the NHS to Improve Radcliffe’s Health Centre
Holme lane forms part of Nottinghamshire’s National Cycle Route 15 and if the condition of this road wasn’t so terrible it could have been a beautiful route away from the A52 for cyclists, and walkers who want to visit Skylarks Nature reserve and the National Watersports Centre. Unfortunately, many are prevented from being able to … Continue reading Nottinghamshire Council Should do more to keep our National Cycle Routes Safe
Even though Councils are required by law to provide “comprehensive” Library services, it is down to local decision makers what this actually means. Some of Nottinghamshire’s Libraries have received substantial investment to improve facilities, but our overall Library budget has been slashed over the last few years. This means that the strain of cuts has … Continue reading We Should Invest to Improve Radcliffe’s Library
