It has been reported in that proposals suggested by Kidsgrove Town Council to put up signs in Clough Hall Park, Kidsgrove have been turned down by Kidsgrove residents as they claimed it would be a “political intrusion”.
Kidsgrove Town Council has unveiled the plans to erect the signs as part of the Queens Jubilee in June. It appears that Labour Councillors Dave Stringer and Kyle Robinson were both fully behind the plans and appears disappointed that residents have rejected the idea. It appears from what Councillor David Stringer has said that residents have taken it in the wrong way. This leaves questions about what was causing residents such concerns about something that appears trivial?
What is more interesting is how we learn the controversial Kidsgrove Youth Parliament was going to offer to fund some of the maps of local businesses in the area. This would no doubt come from the £2000 that the Labour Town Council has controversially handed to the group in the next financial year’s budget. This leaves the question of who in the Kidsgrove Youth Parliament actually made this decision and what benefits the Young People of Kidsgrove get from using public funds to promote private businesses.
We shall look forward to observing the other ways in which Kidsgrove Town Council sets about spending Kidsgrove resident’s money in the coming year.
