2015. A momentous year for followers of national and local politics. The devastating defeat of Ed Miliband and the Labour party in the general election despite predictions he would win. Anston Labour councillors deciding to resign en masse after failing to win the confidence of Rotherham CLP and being tainted with the ‘Not Fit for Purpose‘ remark by Louise Casey and the forced resignation of Jacqui Collins, former Monitoring Officer, because she failed to disclose what she knew about the CSE scandal and refused to investigate claims against Labour councillors.
Is there any good news about Rotherham at all? Hmm….. Rotherham has won the Best Town Centre award 2015. . Which is brilliant news. But we have to wonder why just the High Street is considered to be the Town Centre when there is the Indoor Market
and Wellgate for example?
Or perhaps not.
Just before winning the award RMBC made the decision to close the council information centre in All Saints Square “To save money“. How to encourage visitors to an award winning town centre. Not.
