Swindon Holocaust Memorial Service

Today saw the Swindon Holocaust Memorial Service take place. It was fitting that it was a grey overcast day (excellent for photography) for the short service held at the Cenotaph in Swindon. It was quite well attended by the general public and some of the local dignitaries including Councillor Teresa Page Mayor of Swindon, Angus MacPherson Police and Crime Commissioner for Swindon and Wiltshire was tucked away amongst the public and also Derique Montaut Labour Councillor, there were of course many more if you knew where to look.

It was a quite short service but it was good to see that Swindon held it again this year especially as it is 70 years today.

Swindon and Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Election

I voted in the Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner election this morning. I was the only person there apart from the moderators who were drinking tea and eating bisquits. It is predicted that there will be a very low turn out probably less than 15% for the election.

Will it make any difference? Does it bother you? are you interested? will it affect you?
