Quote Of The Evening

Reported by Roger Blaxall on QLocal, a member of the public stated “After the meeting folk were amazed to see the police response with five police vehicles parked at the Borough Council offices, cue classic quotation from one lady who observed “We were burgled a few months ago, couldn’t get an officer and no one was arrested yet a fat man with no tie calls for the police and five of them turn up”. Priceless!

Policing is an issue, not just of Local Plan meetings. Crime is rising, police presence is falling. Aughton & Downholland alone has suffered a 24.4% increase in the past year. You can check your own area here

Aughton Parish Council (APC) retains an ongoing relationship with local police. But not close enough, apparently, as the recently appointed Chief Inspector, Gill Halliwell , has left without saying goodbye. Perhaps she didn’t enjoy her last visit to the APC when she left the meeting to attend to local drug dealers in the car park outside the Village Hall. She famously said “You may not see us, but we are around, policing has changed” and now we will never see her around again! But we wish her well.
