Also known as Hemingbrough Parish Council. This Blog takes you to the heart of Council meetings so you will see and hear what really happens when the different gang members follow their own pet interests. Although recent times fully justified the ‘Bear Garden’ description I had hoped the team of Councillors elected in 2015 would live up to their pledges. Some hope!

Behind our Backs
The irritatingly Silent Councillor Glenis Harrison blurted
out the truth at the May Council Meeting as she lambasted the leadership of Jan
Strelczenie and Bob Procter, now into its third year.
She is mostly Silent until anything interfering with the interests
of Hagg Lane Green Conservation Society is mentioned. Why did the three deteriorating diesel fuel tanks
under the Memorial Garden get her knickers knotted? Why did she vote for the Council to take the
Gardens into public ownership? (More
about That, later. Much more!)
What have the fuel tanks got do to with Hagg Lane Green?
Presumably, at the monthly Conservation
Society’s meeting on Tuesday, timed to formulate their Parish Council strategy,
they talked about their letter to the Land Registry that may interfere with the
Council’s application to take Hagg Lane Green into public ownership. Can the Society try making another case to
interfere with the Council’s plan and preserve their private interests?
One again, the Council is beset by issues outside the Council. Strelczenie’s ‘Parish History’ Gang (can we get the Villagers to take on the
risks and costs of the Memorial Garden’ unknowingly?),
Procter’s ‘Village Hall’ Gang (can we get another Director of the ‘Village Hall
Gang’ on to the Council to make a bloc of 4?) and the Conservation Group (can we get another of our Steering Group Members on to the
Council to make a voting bloc of 3 or4?)
Councillors Chilvers and Terry remain independent of the
inter-gang rivalries and try their best.
Councillor Sedman? Who
knows? If he doesn’t speak, why does he bother
