Re: “Assault claim after parish meeting” – Dinnington Guardian 3rd May 2013, page 4.
I read with interest the “Assault claim after parish meeting” article, relating to the Anston Parish Council. It reminded me of the time I was on Anston Parish Council, May 2007 to 2010. There was a cronyism culture then and I understand from what I’ve read in the Guardian from time to time the cronyism culture has become much worse since the last election. Read on…..
Thanks to ‘a regular reader’, with very sharp eyes, who spotted this! Couldn’t resist sharing this more widely:
Anston Parish Council has been branded ‘arrogant’ by a resident after councillors ‘verbally attacked’ villagers at a meeting.
Christine Sadler said that some councillors’ attitude towards members of the public who attend meetings was unacceptable.
“It is like the members of the public who attend meetings are regarded as a nuisance that they have to put up with,” she said.
“They are arrogant and are disregarding and disrespecting people.”
During the monthly parish council meeting last Monday, Mrs Saddler said that two councillors referred to members of the public as ‘anoraks with nothing better to do’.

Rothpol congratulates, LoveDinnington for this and is grateful for the efforts expended in bringing this information to the public!
Don’t you just love Anston parish council? Security guards and two Police Officers at last months meeting of this most dysfunctional council! If your experiences sound similar? Please let us know.
