Lancashire Telegraph: Darwen meadow group praises councils Darwen meadow group praises councils

THE chairman of the Friends of the Square Meadow has praised both Darwen Town Council and the borough for their help in bringing the open space back into use.

Harry Blackwell returned from holiday this week to find the field at the centre of a political row.

At last week’s full Blackburn with Darwen council forum, its Labour leader Kate Hollern and Sudell Liberal Democrat Paul Browne traded insults over who had done most to assist the friends in their work.Mr Blackwell said: “Throughout the campaign we received excellent support from Darwen Town Council, Coun Brown and his fellow Sudell councillor Roy Davies.

“When we had to apply to the borough council for help only it could give to return the meadow to recreational use, it was very positive in its response.

“The Friends of the Square Meadow are very grateful for the help from both Darwen Town Council and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council.”

Well done to Lancashire Telegraph for making known this very important political outrage to the folk of Darwen. How dare Paul Brown take credit for what Kate Hollern has achieved is beyond belief and quite right for Kate to trade insults with Paul Brown for trying to take credit for what she has done. Very soon Kate will be taking over Jack Straw’s reigns as MP for Blackburn and for someone to try and take credit for what Kate has done is beyond belief. Who else would have been able to have gathered together support from her leader Jack Straw’s son purely for the benefit of ’The Friends of the Square Meadow Group’ is proof just how much Kate is willing to do for her cause.

I think after this site has been cleared and after the first game played there should be a celebration plaque sited to thank Kate for all that she has done. ’Kate’s Field’ would be a very deserving title and would enable those passing to nod their head in praise for what she has done!

An adult and unbiased response was given from those who first organised the successful group: The Friends of the Square Meadow are very grateful for the help from both Darwen Town Council and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council!
