The last couple of weeks have seen the Council programme for 2008/09 starting to come into effect and officers are working hard to put the finishing touches to reports that will form the basis of the work to be done. I have now been appointed to all of the committees that I particularly wanted to work on and the first of those meetings is due to be held on 24th June.

My name was Miss Rebecca Melissa Cohen. Now it’s District Councillor Rebecca Melissa Cohen. On May 1st I was delighted and slightly flabbergasted to be elected in Loughton Forest ward as the youngest ever District Councillor. Actually, ‘slightly flabbergasted’ is an understatement; my flabber has never been so gasted.
