Barlborough Parish Council have previously kept this window of opportunity well hidden from local residents as they never want the public looking at how they
waste spend our Council Tax money. After a long campaign by a local resident asking for copies of the accounts which has involved an Investigation by the Freedom of Information Commissioner for NON compliance the Parish Council have posted on their notice board the dates that the accounts can be viewed.
If you are interested in just having a look you have from Friday 17th May until Friday 14th June 2013 to view the accounts. Just contact Kim Moran – Parish Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.

…well done Barlborough Life!
At the top of Oxcroft Way on the Treble Bob Roundabout a large pot hole which is filled with water has been allowed to become dangerous by Derbyshire County Council. We have been advised that a local resident reported this as a danger earlier this week and believe it has been scheduled for repair with no date set. As this is on the roundabout for traffic heading towards Chesterfield the potential for drivers to damage their wheels, cyclists to be thrown from their bikes makes this hazard a high risk. As Derbyshire County Council appear to be on go slow now and are aware of the danger they can be held responsible so please find attached a claim form should this danger cause you or your property damage. http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/images/Third%20Party%20Claims%20Form_tcm44-21866.pdf
Please keep us informed of any issues that need resolving by either Bolsover District Council or Derbyshire County Council as they appear to react when we publicise the issue.

Cllr Wilcox (Labour) “I’m not going to ask members to express their gratitude today for Nick’s long service since I understand there will be other opportunities to do that at a later date.”
Nick Hodgson had worked for Derbyshire County Council since 1975. His entire career (apart from the last 4 years) was spent working for a Labour administration. It would have been common courtesy to thank him and acknowledge his longevity of service. But the Labour councillors headed up by the vertically challenged Anne W couldn’t even do that.
It speak volumes, they will become an embarrassment to the national Labour Party.
With a Labour councillor as the new Chief Executive and Cllr Western in control of the finances it’s not going take long before the whole county is in chaos. With her business approach the country would grind to a halt, let alone the county.
‘Speaking before the election, Mrs Western said she was “furious” officers had allowed a major £83 million extra care contract for the elderly to be signed before the election. Mrs Western had wanted the contract to remain unsigned so whoever wins control of the council next week could decide whether to go through with the deal.’
THE chief executive of Derbyshire County Council is leaving the authority at the start of June.

Labour just can’t work with him!
Tesco withdrew their sponsorship of the Parish Council’s Treble Bob roundabout when Labour took over the Parish Council. On Monday, Waystones took their sponsorship signs off the roundabout at the bottom of Slayley View Road.
The ‘Welcome to Clowne’ roundabout creatively planted with grass and hebes could fall victim next…
