Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

I've just read the article in the Observer. It's hard not to laugh at the drivel a certain ex-council leader can come out with :D

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

Apparently there will be something in the Observer this week, and the toilets will be open again full time from next Monday :)

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

I think it was a deliberate mistake by the Observer twitterer at the instruction of PB so he could hold them to it. It should have said 0% increase but again we already knew that because the...

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

Quick update

I believe the toilets will now re-open on a Sunday as from tomorrow. It seems the stocktaking being done by Sunday visitors has forced the issue

We need to hand the petition in,...

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

I've not had much time to check this thread over the past few days. Can somebody trawl back for me and find where a Tory Councillor has answered my question, I think I've missed it :rolleyes:

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

Was the decision about the toilets actually brought up at a council meeting or was it a decision made elsewhere ?

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

We have now got a petition going for re-opening ( yes we are still bleating Cllr Haworth ) . There is one in our shop, the newsagents next door and the kiosk on the corner so far.

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

No reply yet. Maybe they have realised it's probably costing 11,000 a year to open the Market Hall on a Sunday for one cafe :rolleyes:

Re: Hyndburn's New Tourist Attraction

The article in the Observer still claims they are saving £10,000.

Can one of the Tory councillors please inform us how this saving has been calculated ?

Or translated in to Tory speak, the rest of the traders in Accrington can shove their shops where the sun don't shine

Coun Dobson says the penny hasnt dropped that the closure is to drive trade to the market hall. What's wrong with that, he said? [via Twitter]
