Dear voters of Tottington, Walshaw and Affetside
This coming Thursday you will be voting for a Councillor to represent you for 4 years.
My record over the past 19 years speaks for itself, check me out on the history of this blog website.
If you want to protect our precious Greenbelt in Walshaw, only a vote for the Bury Conservative Party can stop Bury Labour from destroying it.
Hope my lucky mascot Rosie Wright brings me luck Thursday !
Thanks for all your messages and good luck wishes.
Please remember Councillors have no control over Brexit and I too am as angry and disappointed as you are of MPs ignoring the wishes of the people.
I Hope you can consider supporting me this Thursday.
Yvonne and Rosie Wright

23 rd June so please save the date to support the library at this community event .The Library was again awarded £1500 at The Pitch event and proud that the little poem I wrote again brought us success.I attended a meeting of The Tottington Townswomens Guild to receive the cheque for the tremendous record breaking amount of £2300 for the library which the ladies had raised over the past year .I attended a promotional evening of Rotary and signed up as an associate member.
Good to hear so many residents sent objections in against the proposals to build 1250 houses in Walshaw. Residents from Bradshaw Road have contacted me to highlight the impact these proposals could have on the their area which is already used as a rat run to Bolton.
The Brexit issue has led many people to say they are not voting and I know many are disappointed in the present stalemate. Not voting in the local elections will not solve a thing regarding Brexit ,so please do vote!
Have supported the Hospice and NSPCC recently at local fundraising events.
Exciting plans in the pipeline for Tottington to honour Bury Soldier GS Peachment who received a Victoria Cross in WW1
Delivering my Election leaflet this past week has brought opportunities to chat with residents….very uplifting to be thanked for my work both at the library and in the Ward generally… thank you, much appreciated .
Do remember I volunteer in the library on Thursdays and I am there all day should you wish to speak to me on any matter……good opportunity to try The Tea Room too !
Water flowing down on the path and highway from Old Kay’s Park.
The Council have said that they are aware of the issue with surface water flowing onto Holcombe Road at Stormer Hill. At this stage of their investigations into the cause of this issue seem to indicate that there is a restriction to the culvert which crosses Holcombe Road.
The Council have informed me that they aim to carry out an exploratory excavation to the culvert when resources become available. Sorry folks looks unlikely that this issue will be sorted anytime soon.
P.S Poop Patrol on the prowl…….need a “ no excuses kit“ in your area? Then please do contact me.
Island Lodge Update on the topographical survey
The tenders went out on Wednesday the 20th of March and are due to be returned on the 17th of April. Assuming that the tenders come in at the expected price the Council would look to carry out the tender appraisal and award the contract by the end of April with the on-site work taking place by the 12th of May and the survey drawings been delivered by the 27th of May.
We are awaiting an update from Environmental Health to update on progress on the misconnected drains.
