Whittington Parish Council have asked for the following message to be posted on this blog. I am delighted to be able to do so.
I write on behalf of Parish Council and would be obliged if you would post the following on your Village Blog
Over the past few months Whittington Parish Council has faced unprecedented criticism from some residents via what is known locally as the Village Blog.
This criticism has focused on a range of subjects including our inability to re-instate the lost bus service , an increase in the precept, the introduction of a speed monitoring device amongst many others, none being complimentary.
Some comments have been personal and aimed at individual members of the Parish Council and as such are unacceptable.
With this in mind the Parish Council have convened an Open Meeting to be held at 7pm on Monday 20th March, prior to the normal Parish Council meeting.
This will give those in the village who have been particularly vocal via the Blog an opportunity to attend and air their grievances. The meeting will also give the same opportunity for the rest of the village to attend and also comment.
