Blog postponed…

EARLIER this week I had drafted my next Leader’s Blog about the forthcoming departure of Charlie Parker to Westminster Council.

On Tuesday evening, however, as news began to break about the tragic death of a local schoolgirl in Shaw, I decided to reconsider.

Annalise Holt, 12, was fatally injured following a collision with a van on Milnrow Road, Shaw and a police investigation is now underway to determine exactly what happened.

Tributes were paid at Full Council on Wednesday night and Councillor Dave Hibbert, Cabinet Member for Environment and Housing, gave a statement to the Council Chamber. You can read the full text here.

Given these circumstances, and the fact that emotions remain very raw, I decided to postpone the publication of my planned blog until Friday this week (December 20).

I’m certain you will understand.

Thanks for listening,

    Given the fact that for years the residents of Shaw have been imploring the Council to do something about this dangerous crossing (only to be met with pathetic excuses), do you or your colleagues now regret the lack of decisive action?
