Councillor Jane Havenhand has announced she is stepping down this year, there have been widespread calls for her to do so since the CSE scandal hot Rotherham as she has held some key rolls in licensing of taxis and child protection in the past.
Rumour around Dinnington is that she will take up a new job with the Olde Dinnington Club, an establishment which her family has been involved in for sometime.
Both Jane and her sister Jacquie have been conspicuously absent from Dinnington Town Council meetings of late, even though she insisted last year she would not resign due to the CSE scandal. (Click for video)
A rather embarassing incident took place past year when their brother went round to a political rivals home and threatened to duff him up. Jacquie was forced to publicly apologise.
LoveDinnington says: whilst we welcome the resignations of complicit Councillors we would also urge that any money they have received over the years for failed duties should be repaid and put into a fund for victims of CSE in Rotherham Borough.
