Save Rosehill, or a Tory distraction plot?

16 Mar

I have just heard that Chris Stewart, Tory councillor and chair of this meeting says there were only “about 5” expressions of interest in forming a committee to run Rosehill – I saw the pile of forms at the end of the meeting, it was an inch thick! There had to have been more than 5 interested people. I put my name down, and I know at least four others who did – there’s your committee right there! At this meeting there was no mention of amount of people needed to form a committee, you either want to save the library and are thankful for every volunteer you get, or you’re not.

More suspicious than ever that the meeting was called to keep us quiet and distract from council plans.

Or maybe Cllr Stewart has realised how much hard work is involved in the Big Society.

    I also expressed an interest on joining the committee…….

    Why wait for Cllr Stewart to convene a committee meeting when you can call one yourself?

    Best wishes

      There will be a proper public meeting about Rosehill on April 6th at 7pm, Alan Road Methodist Church. This IS a protest meeting, to see what we can do next to move our campaign foreward. Spread the word!

    Am sure I recall Cllr E Harsant telling us that lots of people had expressed an interest, when she spoke at Borough Council Budget Meeting. Will try to requisition transcript.
