Last  night's Winchmore Hill Ward Forum at the Orange Tree was by all accounts very informative and a success - apart from disruption from someone who will be standing in the council elections for one of the councillor seats in the same ward.  It seems that the police even had to intervene.  Probably no coincidence that the same man is the only person I've ever had to ban from the PGC forums because he persisted in attacking "the man, not the ball" and for unacceptable language........

Following a public consultation earlier this year about proposals to change the charging formula for providing adult social care, Enfield Council has decided not to implement any changes at present.  Instead it will  "take a longer and more in depth look at how best to ensure fairness in our charging policy and use of resources". The changes that the council was consulting on would have affected people who require overnight care, for some of whom the charges made by the council would.......
