Cissie and Ada Hard At It…

cissie-and-ada1The Labour Party chatterati were hard at it this week in between the top lip and chin waxes. Apparently, there is talk of a sponsored second hand police van to increase the police presence and visibility in Barlborough. The Labour Party are all up in arms about it…the Barlborough Labour Party that is!

How quickly the Barlborough Labour Party forget! Less than 2 years ago they wanted to pay for a police community support officer to the tune of £26k, with no guarantees that this post would be centrally funded after a two-year period. Eventually, £25k was ring-fenced for a CCTV system in the village, to add onto the current system in the centre of the village. The Labour controlled parish council never managed to get it sorted out though nothing new there.

It transpires, the existing system had only been recording on a Tuesday for the last two years. No doubt that has now been resolved. It will be interesting to see if there is CCTV footage from the recent village hall break-in and lead theft  from the Little School roof last week (the second time in less than a year). Watch this space…
