They did not have to sell to a supermarket.
As far as I know, if they don't sell to a supermarket, the college can only expect to receive about £4 million for the site, and this will mean that the entire scheme will collapse. I see from another post that you have grandchildren, Mrs O. Are you interested in ensuring that they have decent facilities for their sixth-form education? Or don't you care?
(Social Conscience)?Nah! like I said before selfish!
I'm puzzled by this repeated accusation of selfishness. There is nothing remotely selfish about serving as a school or college governor. People who serve as college governors do so out of public-spiritedness. They give up their time to deal with mountains of tedious bureaucracy, attend long boring meetings, and they don't get paid a penny for it. Sometimes I wonder why any of them do it. And then someone comes on this forum and accuses them of being selfish, of all things. Section of post removed.
