North Heaton eFocus 10
Easter 2016 edition

Hello to regular e-Focus readers and welcome to new subscribers – more than 500 North Heaton residents now receive our e-Focus newsletter!
In addition to the regular local community news, we are taking the opportunity to remind residents that the local and police & crime commissioner elections are due to be held on May 5th.
We would like to encourage you to re-elect Doreen as one of North Heaton’s three Councillors – enabling her to continue to serve our area alongside Greg Stone, and keeping the Lib Dem FOCUS Team working hard for you and for our area.
Best wishes, Doreen and Greg – Your local Lib Dem Councillors
Working for North Heaton all year round!

Polling Day is May 5th – Re-elect Doreen!

An unrivalled record of working for North Heaton.
Our area’s voice on the council – not the council’s voice in our area!
A vote for Labour in North Heaton is a vote for higher council tax, less local say on council decisions affecting our area, less money for local community projects, less road and pavement repairs, and less street cleaning. Conservatives and UKIP can’t win here – a vote for them only helps Labour.
Re-elect a councillor with a record of service and action: re-elect DOREEN!

DOREEN is fighting to protect the 553 bus service reintroduced in High Heaton and Cochrane Park following a long campaign by your Lib Dem FOCUS Team – the former number 3 service from Regent Centre to Walker via the Freeman Hospital and Benfield Road. The 18/32 “shopper” on Newton Road & Heaton Road to Shields Road may also be at risk.

No1 Bus Turning on Sackville RoadSackville Road’s Yellow Lines

The council is currently advertising proposals to create additional double yellow lines at the junction of Sackville Road and Whitefield Terrace.
