No New Posts Local Elections and Council Matters

ARCHIVED 31/10/2022: This board, first set-up to cover the 2016 local elections, was "re-badged" to cover subsequent elections each year until May 2022. It was also a good place to segregate threads about local council issues and other topics topics that we wanted our local councillors to contribute to. Unfortunately they stopped doing that.

No New Posts Hazel Grove Elections May 2015

ARCHIVED 31/10/2022: This board is set up for discussing the forthcoming general election and specifically the seat of Hazel Grove, which includes the Marple Area. With Sir Andrew Stunell OBE, incumbent since 1997, retiring it's likely that Hazel grove will be much more tightly contest than it has been in the recent past. Please let's try have a healthy exchange and try to understand the points of view of others as well as promoting your own. Rather than a political slanging match let's try to be positive about our prospective candidates to be our new local MP!

No New Posts Sale of Hibbert Lane Campus to Supermarket Chain
