Re: Darlo's High Street

Darlington town centre is not helped by the stupid decision by the last Labour council to build an office bloke opposite the Vue cinema, This site was earmarked for a leisure development, which would have helped to bring extra people into the town centre. But now an office block is being built, for...

Re: Sporting Village

There is a small 6 month window every year in which the Council cares about certain types of schemes.

That 6 months is just before council elections - Mr Upshall just got his timing wrong.

Dropping £14 to £10 is a drop of 28%. 1100 to 1400 is an increase of 27%. I'm using a figure of 1100 paying £14 versus 1400 paying £10. Just a rough approximate, but you are correct, if we only have 500 pay on the day supporters then I can see it would work as a small increase. But 600 (say) of tho...

The reason why many qualified people like me won't volunteer is attitudes like yours. It's equally the reason ...
