Nothing gives the Dame greater pleasure than praising the Council and staff for the good things it does.
Keeping our streets clean is one of those 'good things.' The aftermath of Notting Hill Carnival is a load of old rubbish littering the streets and presenting massive problems for the clean up teams. And it is not just a few streets....around thirty are affected.
Logistically, it is the stuff of nightmares..... all the streets have to be kept closed off so the clean up teams can work unimpeded by cars, etc.
Is it all worth it? Most residents probably think not: for them the Carnival is entirely in the wrong place.
But praise has to go out to the clear up teams for the excellent job they do and to Kathy May, Head of Waste Management and Markets for keeping it all together.

Well done to all concerned.
We should never forget that what residents want is this sort of day to day efficiency....not 'show off' £30 million roads or shiny £100 million schools offering not one extra place.
