Kidbrooke with Hornfair gets it's own blog

Yesterday, new Tory councillor for Kidbrooke with Hornfair, Andy Jennings, posted a comment to this site. We noticed that Cllr Jennings had actually registered a Blogger account so had a look at his profile. It appears he's set up a blog for his ward.

We're going to monitor the blog closely and see if Cllr Jennings updates it with news for his constituents. If it does become updated regularly we'll add a link to it. We'd like to offer some advice to Cllr Jennings about blogging though. Given the blog is for the ward and not just him, it would be great if he could get his fellow ward councillors to register Blogger accounts and then they can be added as "Team Members" on the blog.

We think the people of Kidbrooke with Hornfair would appreciate being able to read what their ward councillors are doing for them. It would also be refreshing if the party political differences of the Kidbrooke councillors was not an obstacle to them engaging with their constituents together.

Thanks for your comments. I'm fairly new to the blogosphere but will certainly have something up and running soon.

Will it be cross-party?

Would the Labour party let them?
