A Strong Pulse

Went along to Seal Village Hall this afternoon, where I'd been asked by the West Kent Housing Association to speak at the launch of a new residents' group - the Pulse.

The Village Hall was packed - colleagues from voluntary and public sector turned up en masse to wish them all the very best.

The group has only been going for three months, but already they have regular meetings, where they discuss how their services are being delivered, and how they would like to see them improved.

As local government looks to provide more appropriate and timely services to a greater number and wider range of people, groups like the Pulse are becoming more and more critical to that task.
