I noticed that Hampshire County Council has published a short film highlighting the work carried out by council staff for the 1.3 million residents of Hampshire and I thought I would share this with you.
The film focuses on a 24 hour period where we glimpse staff helping local people of all ages and ability. We see the work undertaken in libraries, registration offices, schools, countryside and highways. The film shows council staff assisting residents of care homes, day centres and specialist units and then puts the spotlight on trading standards monitoring quality of food and other goods on our behalf. Councillors are featured in a packed meeting whilst outside a gritting lorry loads up before setting out to keep the roads ice free and safe. The lorry was named Jack de Frost – nice touch!
I learnt a lot from this excellent film, produced by students in Winchester, and it certainly gave me a deeper insight into how our county council operates and what they are responsible for on a daily basis. I would urge you to see it and share it with your friends and family. http://www3.hants.gov.uk/servinghampshire
