Kidsgrove Residents Don’t Flock to Meet Newcastle Borough Council Cabinet

kidsgrove residents dont attend meetingIt appears from reports that the “Meet the Leadership” event which took place at Kidsgrove Town Hall last week was far from a resounding popular success. Reports which have been posted online suggest that as few as 3 Kidsgrove residents actually attended the event which was held by Newcastle Borough Council at Kidsgrove Town Hall.

If these figures are correct then it goes to demonstrate the new low that Kidsgrove has fallen to when it comes to trust of the council to do the right things for Kidsgrove. Recently Kidsgrove saw a by-election with an exceptionally low turnout which maybe should have been a good indication in the importance Kidsgrove residents placed on meeting the local council leaders.

There was an original plan to hold a monthly meeting away from Newcastle and hold it in Kidsgrove, however if this idea will still remain after this reported low turnout will have to be seen.

Would you have gone even if you had known about it? It isn't like you input will make any difference to what happens.

It is not surprising, ass I for one didn't know about it. How many did?

What a waste of money when you think about the costs to open the town hall. I bet those councillors are also claiming expenses to travel to Kidsgrove as well!?

Why am I not surprised that no one bothered to attend. What is the point when all the policy is decided by the political parties and the local people just have to live with it.
