Why a blog and a web site?

The idea is to report the things that affect our village and our quality of life. Much is done by our elected representatives without any real thought to the overall well being of the very people that they are supposed to represent in the first place. Barlborough elects Labour candidates the majority of the time, this vote is solid, due in the main to those that have a different view to Labour not voting in “local” elections. The average turnout is really poor averaging 30%.

They effectively have no opposition and do what they like. This site is intended to inform the people of Barlborough of what really goes on. However, this blog is not a public service, if you don’t like what is written here, then don’t read it – start your own blog!

You can email  just@barlboroughlife.com if you have something to say.
