My name is Guy Shepherd, I am the District Councillor for Downs Ward in Horndean, and this is my blog. Here I hope to keep everyone informed on what the current local issues are which affect Downs. These may be the local play areas, activities in the villages nearby such as development, or major EHDC decisions which affect funding and the services that we get. It is also a good way for you to get hold of me, and raise your concerns too. Over time I hope this will become a useful and reliable source of local information, and wherever possible some humour. This blog definitely represents my own views, and not those of any organisation I represent.
