Aughton Parish Council Meeting

Residents of Aughton are invited to attend the APC meeting on Monday 10 July 2017 in the Aughton village Hall Annexe, starting at 7.30pm. The agenda below is noticeable for its lack of any mention of matters local people have expressed concerns about, such as the scruffy state of the Town Greens and the Winifred Lane triangle, and the on-going speeding issues on Long Lane. Members of the public who raise these issues in public question time are general treated with a series of hand-wringing platitudes before being refused. Policing is included as usual, all crimes being historical and of no use to Neighbourhood Watch volunteers to warn their members. In fact NHW faces a dire future as its nature will change into a seemingly total volunteer led service as this letter shows, all in the name of a “cheaper than the already free” service provided [click to read].
