Children dashed around in a cheerful fashion, some queuing up to get their twig pencils sharpened with a…

This is now due for agreement by this inner corps of the Council on 3 July --- without ever bothering to go to full Council, never mind actually ask local taxpayers what we think of selling off our public authority land, estates and business premises to a so-called 50/50…
