Eltham councillor in the spotlight

I know you're all busy with Egypt at the moment, but listen up...

Here's news of a (relatively) new local blog and podcaster of things related to our glorious borough of Greenwich. 'In the Meantime' is, in their own words:
"a local news and sports radio discussion programme. It is broadcast on the hospital radio station at the Woolwich Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The programme broadcasts every two weeks and can only be heard at the hospital. However, each programme is immediately podcasted and put on this website for residents of Greenwich Borough to listen to."
It's a lovely clean blog, and there are three podcasts already waiting for you. Here's news of the next one this Sunday 20th February - a must for Eltham-ites, an interview with a local, Eltham councillor:
"Our guest this Sunday will be Councillor Nigel Fletcher. Nigel is the councillor for the Eltham North ward. He first gained the seat at a by-election in February 2005, and was re-elected at the Borough elections in 2006 and 2010.  He is now Deputy Leader of the Opposition and is the Conservative Group‘s spokesman on Culture and Olympics.  He has a particular interest in heritage issues, and has been an active supporter of the Cutty Sark restoration and other local preservation projects. He is a member of the board of the Royal Artillery Museum in Woolwich.
He has kindly allowed us to collate questions from the general public to pose to him when he’s on air this Sunday. Therefore, if you have any questions that you would like to put to Cllr Fletcher then please comment on this blog post or contact us in the usual ways. Please bear in mind that Cllr Fletcher is part of the Conservative opposition party in Greenwich Borough. Therefore his job is more to scrutinise policy rather than make policy. Your question may be about a particular concern within the Eltham North ward or indeed about Greenwich Borough in general."
