A letter from Anston’s Tim Wells

A quick letter here from Tim Well, setting out his vision for Anston and starting the New Year off in no uncertain terms, expect to see it in the Guardian.
I always like to read Tim’s letters, he certainly has ideas and a direction he’d like to see Anston take! Wonder what he thinks to my cunning plan to divert the A57 away from Anston centre and the Stones?
Almost sounds like an election manifesto Tim!

Dear Anston folk.
 
I wonder if the Parish council can pass a New Years resolution, by ensuring the Parish clerks attends the office 3 out of 5 days a week, so that he can more effectively run the Parish and support and manage the staff there.  We are lucky if he attends one afternoon a week.  How can anybody run a Parish when they don’t get involved in the day to day activities that go off!
 
I think more use could be made of Anston Stones Wood, selling on wood to create an income would boost the coffers of the council, we should ensure that this valuable revenue stream is protected.  Why not have a resident craftsman and his apprentice working there, which would create two valuable jobs.
 
Anston is now a small town of 10K people and needs a Parish clerk who can deliver what the Town requires.  We haven’t even got a decent Civic centre for the town, anybody would have thought the Parish council had been asleep for the last 30 years.  We need decent rail and bus links to Sheffield.  On top of this Anston is due a Comprehensive school, the upper school at Dinnington could be removed to all this to happen.   There is so much more that could be done to make Anston a better place to live and commute from.
 
Hopefully the Parish council will pull out their finger and provide a Christmas tree for next year, I understand it would be easy to tap into the electric supply half way up the Baulk.  I understand somebody is ready to donate the tree.
 
Can I draw attention to the excellent work carried out by the dwindling Parish workers, who do the job more for love, than the money.
 
All the best for the New Year
