What is the collective noun for a crowd of Councillors, both District and Town? Well, there were a large number of them in Manning’s Pit yesterday, all showing their support in a socially distanced way.
Former Mayor Ian Roome spoke glowingly about the importance of Manning’s Pit, and interviewed two of us on his Facebook Live Stream. As he said, and we know, there was a real possibility that the Town Council could have helped with the purchase, but the pandemic put a halt to any plans of that, for the present at least.
Any prospective developer thinking of putting in a bid needs to know how much the importance of Manning’s Pit is understood by all our Town and District Councillors. It is – after all – an Asset of Community Value.
