Richmond councillor Judene Edgar said the Richmond community tended to engage on focussed issues-based consultation, rather than conversing on a broad variety of issues through an over-arching residents association. In addition the council had become more proactive and engaged over the years -- seeking public feedback rather than waiting for reaction. And technology meant councillors were more accessible through email and Facebook, she said. And the forum has just not connected with the community for the council to say -- this is the voice of Richmond. It's a bit of a sign of the times,'' she said. This week Albie said that all Richmond councillors rarely attended the forum's meetings, but gathering called by council- lors were better attended. Tuesday night's meeting will be at Richmond Library from 7.30pm. QUOTE OF THE WEEK ' My middle name is frugal because I'm known to be able to do more with less than anyone else. I was 17, married and pregnant -- but blessed with a husband who is now my best friend. ' Salvation Army community ministry manager Jill Knight explains why she can relate to people struggling, page 6. IN BRIEF Big Beach Clean-up Saturday, November 9 will see the Department of Conservation hosting Nelson Tasman's fourth Big Beach Clean-up. Covering nearly 300km of coastal line and some 50 beaches between Cable Bay and the Tonga Island Marine Reserve in the Abel Tasman, this event has seen more than 28 tonnes of rubbish collected off our stunning coastline. You can register online to select one of the 30 remaining beaches to be covered by this year's event. Previous years' participants have overwhelming said that it's a great day out and as a chance to do something special for the places they love.
