My Idea Has Been Given The Cold Shoulder
Sometimes I have these crazy thoughts about enhancing success.
A lot of people strive for success and they want to better themselves. They want to build on what they have achieved. Like buying a house – people move in, you redecorate, you might add a conservatory, you might even build an extension… you want to make it better.
So recently I took it upon myself in a moment of madness to think about the Rayleigh Christmas lights event could be enhanced. Don’t get me wrong, it’s enjoyed by ALOT of people and has enjoyed incredible success. This year I helped out as a member of Rayleigh Town Council and thoroughly enjoyed my time working alongside my fellow council members, it gave me a new perspective to see how much work goes in to organising such an event. However, back to enhancing….. I thought about the event and it seems we all enjoy the big build up to the light switch on with the stalls and music. Once the lights go on, what happens… everyone goes home! How about this – an ICE RINK? For families to enjoy their special time together, those who don’t want to skate could stand and spectate whilst enjoying hot chocolate, whilst watching Dad grasp to the sides edging his way around tentatively while trying to keep the little ones upright.
Alas though, it seems my dreams are put on ice – I am met with the opinion of my fellow council members
This was considered by the Committee but members agreed that we do not have the available space on the event night and RDC would not want car parks used for this purpose. The KGV field is locked at 5pm
No investigation into the feasibility…. nothing! Do you share my dreams and hopes? I however will lock these crazy ideas away once more and continue on the journey of stagnation.
Let me know what you think…
