Blimey, who'd have thought that a thread about a bank closing would get so personal? Perhaps our benevolent Webmaster needs more help with moderating? Or maybe, like most of us, he secretly enjoys watching the 'bear baiting' that occurs here, it's like Jeremy Kyle without having to watch JK preening in front of the camera!

The carnival will continue in one way or another.  But it seems the rigmarole about the play park just runs on and on..................

Yes, I saw the Part II thing. What interesting times we live in.....

Of course there won't be Lynne.  You don't expect our Conservative led Council to actually read the Gazette or connect with their constituents? (And I say this as a former Tory) At least the Lib Dems (usually inaffective) and the Independents are trying to think for themselves at the moment. Interestingly I heard the other day that the Clerk has resigned.

It wasn't that many years ago that the idea of pulling down and replacing the bandstand was scuppered by the Environment Agency saying that they would object to it because it's in a flood plain. Has that changed? Or are our Councillors so set on this idea that they haven't thought it through.......

That's been done Lynne, I tried but just got shrugged shoulders and an 'I did what I was asked to'

@D.Mond  using your 1% of population figure - do you also thnk it fair that 100% of the population get that large chunk of the lawn taken away from them by a decision made from a survey of only approx 5% of the population? (and before anyone bangs on about democracy it's also democracy that allows petitions if you don't agree with a decision made by your elected representatives)

And people still do that Leatash.  And sometimes there's nothing wrong with wanting things to stay the same, change for the sake of change is pointless.  Preserve what is worth keeping - the open space, the green areas to play and picnic on.  Enhance what needs to be enhanced - the bandstand. Playpark in the corner by the Ugly Duckling or where the Piazza is would be great but not taking up ...

Carnival.

For various reasons I couldn't see the procession on Friday but have seen it on the facebook page - looked great. Having spoken to someone on the committee it's interesting to note how few councillors went to any of the activities and that the town centre manager was also absent all week

I heard that the vote was in favour of the play park, but don't know more than that. It was 4 -3 in favour.  Those in favour were Cllrs Clemens, both Fennes and one other that I can't remember.  Against were Cllrs Wrigley, Lowther & Almond I believe
