Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

There was about 6 police officers having a photo with the league trophy in town so it is poor they wouldn't allow the civic duty of a longer parade. We have had similar issues with carnivals and church walk days in recent years (you have to Marshall the parade yourself the police won't do it). Nethertheless still enjoyed the parade. Great opportunity for photos and signatures from players and to hold trophy. It must have been an impressive site to club seeing the thousands in town for them.

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

They came down Whalley Rd on a bus just as we would do ,the empty open top was ahead of ,they turned into Argyle St , then re appeared in the open top bus . A bit of a letdown from what was in the press , but like I said earlier we did see the team on the open top bus.

Glad I resorted to 'Plan B', & walked down to Broadway!

Plan A was to walk the much shorter distance to outside the hospital & watch them pass there.... would have been a disappointment, as then no time for me to catch up with them.

Who on earth decided that it was not safe to transport a group of people, downhill, on an open top bus? Can they only drive on the level?

funny how they can drive both uphill and downhill around haworth and oxenhope daily in the summer on hilly and narrow roads in the summer in 50 odd years old open top buses and being leylands their brakes were not great even when manufactured. lunatics and asylums again.

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

The annoying thing is, you can travel on an open top tour bus around London and other cities without an escort, so why not Accrington, what's the difference? Complete and utter madness IMHO. No wonder Coley looked glum, I can understand now

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

P*** poor planning produces poor performance. The 6Ps seems to be the way to organise anything in Hyndburn. I feel very sorry for the children and parents that waited on Whalley Rd, so disappointing for them.

You forgot the seventh P - the police.

A sorry state of affairs after Stanley's amazing achievement put the town back on the map!
Don't think any blame can be attached to either the club or the council.
The real culprits here are the police, or rather the lack of.
Since our police presence was stripped to the bone & reduced to a rented shop on Broadway, they no longer have the resources to supervise a children's birthday party.
Sadly, like everything else today it's all down to MONEY!
Be prepared to cough-up for extra bobbies - or the party is off!

Re: Stanleys Parade Tomorrow.

Do your childrens' birthday parties really require police supervision? Can I come to the next one?

Saw Manchester City's parade on the news this morning, not one but two open top buses sailing through the city centre - obviously no h & s issues there??
