Letter - My view on meeting row

Share this article

With reference to Colin Nicholson’s letter in last week’s Express questioning Mr Barratts version of events at the Hemsworth Town Council AGM last year, I can confirm all what Mr Barratt said regarding Mr Nichloson.

I attended the same meeting and witnessed Mr Nicholson and Mr Donaldson having a ‘difference of opinion’ over football matters and Chairman West did indeed ask them to take themselves outside if they continued to disrupt the meeting.

Mr Barratt did call the clerk a liar but later apologised with no encouragement from anyone.

If you turned up at more meetings Mr Nicholson you would better understand the workings of local councils a little bit better than you do.
