8th February
An early start with a meeting expressing concerns over the Meat Plant vis a vis farmers and the supply chain.

Social Affair Policy Review Committee at 14:00 more oral evidence from people who have experienced contact with Social Services with particular emphasis on adoption.

An evening date with Patrick Commissioners with a frank discussion from both sides over issues affecting the Parish. I stressed that as an MHK I wanted to assist not compete with the Commissioners and that we were best working together.

I have taken away a couple of work streams that will include a visit to the Civic Amenity Site as well as trying to progress leases with regard to Patrick Community Centre and Foxdale Heritage Centre.
