    Cllr Moseley said: "We've been working with the Newent community for the past 18 months in a bid to improve the facilities in the local area."

    "Now we are elected to the FODDC, we intend to work closely with Newent Town & Taynton Parish Councils. Exchanging ideas and information can help develop better resources and projects for all the residents of our ward."

    "We have a method of keeping in touch with every household with our regular Focus newsletters."

    "It also shows that, having a vision for the future of this town as part of the wider district, is beneficial for all concerned."

    A report in The Times on Saturday announced that Councils have spent about £100 million on fighting parents seeking support for their disabled children and losing nine out of ten of the cases that went to tribunals.

    I have two comments to make on this news.

    The stress and work this process puts plaintiffs through is enormous and the cost horrendous. When The Times states that local authorities have allegedly lied they do not exaggerate. Parents of disabled children go through enough agony already without having to fight for their rights and make a home for their families often in circumstances that would be a nightmare for most people.
