We’ve been forwarded the latest footage from the eye of the lens of our beloved Mr Brace by a number of people who thought it might be of interest.

However there were too many longueurs for our liking (that’s French for ‘boring bits’).

As usual it was a case of  councillors skirting round the most pertinent issues with Matron reminding committee members that they  “can get yourselves into a bit of a mess “ if they don’t follow the Council’s guidance and protocols.

    The reason I filmed the Chair while I was speaking, is because it was unclear until I did speak, where I was going to be speaking from and by then I was too far away from the camera to move it into position or go to a wide shot.

    To be honest, I should’ve had that conversation before the meeting started (about where I would speak from), so lesson learned! As there were no microphones and the tea & coffee machine made a noise part way through (ironically this was in part of my remarks) I hope councillors and others actually heard what I said!
