My week ahead 15 - 21 July 2013

Monday 15 July – 4pm, Culture Portfolio meeting
6pm, Labour campaigning

Thursday 18 July – 6pm, Scrutiny meeting

Back from a week away training potential Army Officers but now back in Ipswich to start Summer campaigning.
A planning application has been placed to turn the John Bull pub into a number of fast food take away restaurants. We are asking local residents for their views on this planning application.. The new application may cause more traffic issues on a road that is likely to see increased congestion once the Golden Key re-opens as Sainsburys after the summer. When Greene King applied to turn the Golden Key into supermarket they never mentioned that they were also going to off load the John Bull pub. Greene King have certainly not behaved like good neighbours.

Since I have been away, Ipswich Spy have posted about the on-going legal dispute with Ransomes Sports Club. As the issue may end up in court, unlike Ipswich Spy we have to be careful in what we say about the current management of the club. I am sure Sally Wainman means well but I am not sure she has been given the full story by certain members of the Ransomes management.

So maybe Sally should ask these questions:

Why was the Ransomes Bowls Club forced out by members of Ransomes management?

Why have the sequence dancing club also had to leave?

Why are many of the sports teams keen that IBC do take over the running of the club?
