Warsop flower beds are a disgrace

Perhaps your Eye Spy correspondent should get on his bike as the saying goes, then he might wander through Warsop.

He would maybe be able to see the nice flower clock on his right hand side adjacent to St Teresa’s Church, overgrown and neglected, although some kind person has now got rid of the weeds.

The two mine cars on the left hand side when driving towards Worksop near the traffic lights at the old Town Hall are totally overgrown and a disgrace. These mine cars were placed there by the council’s former head of parks Martin Bell. I was instrumental in getting him six mine cars from Welbeck Colliery.

Two are at the Mines Rescue station, two in Warsop and two at the bottom of Elkesley Road in Meden Vale

It would appear as if people In Warsop do not pay their council tax to Mansfield District Council, as they are always at the end of any spending by the District Council. As a former district councillor for over 20 years, I know cutting the Council Tax is easy, you just do not do any thing, especially in Warsop it would seem.

Take the Carr Lane park, for instance, and just compare it with anywhere else in the district; there is no comparison.

When are we in Warsop going to get our fair share of the Council cake? When you ring the Council about the problem, the answer you get is that it belongs the County Council - the County Council had no involvement in the placing the mine cars and planting them. That was all done by Mansfield District Council Parks department.
