@Lynne That address you're thinking of is the 'artist's' residence. He did try to get a mermaid statue in Teignmouth a few years ago but they turned him down He did a consultation at Sainsbury's a while back, I put in a comment that was not complimentary, I didn't realise that the gentleman was hovering nearby and as I walked away he must have heard me saying to my companion how hideous I ...

Well said that man! And now will those councillors who voted to give them money actually realise what has been going on and see that all they have done is prop up a group of people who are so blind to public opinion they should hang they heads in shame.

Sorry Michael, just need to reply to Margaret... I didn't intend to leave you waiting by your computer into the wee small hours awaiting my reply, I do apologise for the inconvenience.  Dorian was right, I was trying to sleep and then was enjoying the company of my family over the weekend. Strangely this forum didn't feature highly on my list of things to do. In answer to your question; ...

@MargaretSwift. To give them a last chance in your final year of this council is a total cop out.  If you stand again for council and get re-elected will you then say to them they had their last chance?  Or will you walk away from council being able to say that you supported the carnival all through your term of office? either way seems bull crap!

@michaelclayson i admire your stance and agree that to abstain was the best option.  it is a shame that some of your fellow councillors don't have the same courage to say that they aren't entirely happy about the situation. @the observer. Many people have tried to have their say and make a difference but it is ignored. Sadly their point of view is that they are the directors and there is ...

Can I just point out that if anyone is unhappy with the decision made by the council an ideal opportunity to show this is imminent in May - lovely local elections.

Frustrating isn't it, when you know so many people have offered help and it's been turned down again and again. To say they have had to pay for help just doesn't seem right, I know they had volunteer marshals for Pram Race and the procession. There are lots of people who would have help run an event or marshal or collect.  But when the events are run so poorly and the directors are so ...

I do sort of agree that the apprenticeship schemes are worthwhile, providing the qualification gained is relevant, the experience in the workplace is progressed during the time of the placement ie. not stalled after they learn how to make a brew and take a phone message, and there is a real chance of a full time job at the end - not just a thanks and 'next trainee please'. I understand that ...

My young person started full time work on an apprenticeship earning £2.68 an hour - this was not years ago this was last year, out of that there was travel costs to pay so not much was left at the end of the week but an NVQ was added to the list of qualifications gained at school and college. (Uni was decided against as the preferred subjects would naturally have led to a teaching career and my YP ...
