If I am honest when I was first asked to stand in to attend the Darlaston Town Centre Partnership meetings I thought I would not find it interesting. How wrong I was. Sometimes you go into these things having no idea who is who, in fact I don’t know a lot about Darlaston as I don’t live here and have only worked here for 4 months. I have found the meetings I have attended both informative and interesting and the people who attend are a great bunch of people, trying to better the area in which they work and/or live. By sitting and listening at the meetings I have learnt quite a lot, you don’t realise how much hard work goes into getting people to work together. I hope the partnership continues, a lot of work has been put into the group and it shows.
