It has only been a month since Kidsgrove residents were concerned at the arrival of travelers on Birchenwood Car park in Kidgrove, yet now it appears travelers have returned to the area in a different location.
The travelers have this time descended on land of Gloucester Road which is owned by the University of Chester Academy Kidsgrove. This is the school which was formally known as Maryhill to many in the local area. As it is the land owners responsibility to evict the travelers from the site, it appears this could take longer than the process at Birchenwood which was owned by Newcastle Borough Council.
There will clearly be a cost to obtain a court order forcing them to leave, as well as the cost of clearing up any mess that is left behind. These costs will most probably have to come out of the academy budget, thus potentially taking away vital resources from the main focus of education.
