Sunrise on Election Day in Hemingbrough
05:16 7 May 2015.
Will it be a bright new day for the village? Eleven Parish Council seats are at stake.
The choice seems simple from reading the election leaflets.
‘The Village Memorial and Oldways Crew’
Nine residents “Pledged to be of strong moral principles; honesty and decency in Parish Council Affairs with a programme for better Communication with residents, the Village Entrance, Village Memorial Garden, ‘Oldways’, using the Precept for Improvements and Services, Transport, Local Issues, Hagg Lane Green, Accountability, Consultation and Working Together”
The nine candidates “fully support the current Official Investigation into the Probity of the Parish Council dealings with the Hagg Lane Green Group.”
Liz Carstairs, Roland Chilvers, Forbes Davidson, Eddie Kinsella, Vic Parkin, Bob Proctor, Les Stebbings, Jan Strelczenie, Keith Terry.
‘The Hagg Lane Green Group’
Six residents who controlled the Council proposals by their bloc voting for the past four years and who want “to run the Parish Council” for the next four years with not a single item of Improvement in their election literature, just a commitment “to keep the precept at the same level by using the reserves accrued” by their inaction.
The Hagg Lane Green Group denied the Village Memorial Rose Garden even a tiny donation despite a formal request from a resident for them to do so! Personal animosities got in their way.
