June 5, 2009: Some of our comments about the planning proposals (see story below) were followed up by Scottish and Newcastle, who asked us to publish supplementary comments. We will of course be happy to do that, except that these seemed very badly informed to us, especially about the loss of meeting/function space. We asked for further clarification but have had nothing back yet. More as soon as we get it.
The Tour of Britain event is gathering pace. The Town Council is aiming to get as many people involved as possible and the Carnival has already agreed to help. One set of Tar Barrels will have been made for the annual charity pull (August 29th this year, to Highhampton) and an offer from the Tar Barrel sub committee to pull this on the day of the race has been accepted. More soon at this page.
