Kidsgrove Town Centre Community Interest Company Members

Kidsgrove Community Interest CompanyKidsgrove residents may have read online and possibly heard that Kidsgrove has now formed a community interest company who will take the responsibility for promoting and organising events in Kidsgrove. This group we are told is to comprise of local Kidsgrove Councillors, business people and Kidsgrove residents.

The Kidsgrove Town Centre Community Interest Company was formed on the 25th September 2013 and has its registered company address at 2 Chapel Lane, Harriseahead. This address is also the one used by Kidsgrove Labour councillor Paul Waring.

One of the common questions that we seem to keep being asked about this organisation constantly focuses around who is actually involved in this Kidsgrove Town Centre Community Interest Company?

Well below we can list all of the current people involved in this company which hopefully will answer this common question.

  • Paul Waring (Secretary)
  • Elliot Ashton (Director)
  • Neil McNicholas (Director)
  • Mark Smithson (Director)
  • John Tervit (Director)
  • Paul Waring (Director)

We will have to wait a while yet for the public to get access to the accounts of this company, however it will have to publish audited accounts which will become publicly available. Let's hope that given time they can come up with some ideas to drive new life back into Kidsgrove Town Centre.

I have posted a response on the forum page, but just to clarify the use of a home address of one of the directors was purely a temporary measure to ensure we could get the CIC set up efficiently and so no papers went missing at the Town Hall etc.

We have lots of exciting projects planned to hopefully boost Kidsgrove's economy and encourage anyone to come along to our meetings.

This is done so that the group can apply for more grants and have access to greater range of funds.

Why have they created another group to do what the council does? I bet the council gives them a pot of money to spend in the form of a grant?

Why is this group that are spending public money based at someone's home address? How much of public money are they in charge of?
