Complainant Name:
Wales Parish Council

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Rotherham Advertiser

Complaint:

John Haywood, Clerk to Wales Parish Council, complained that an article about Kiveton Park and Wales Village Hall was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The Complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification on the matter:

Further to out article dated 15 August (“Barred by the bar”), we have been asked to point out that the Wales Parish Council deny the claim made by a former parish councillor that they obtained a bank loan to fund the Kiveton Park and Wales Village Hall. Wales Parish Council also wish to make clear that the village hall cost £1.15 million, and that the grant provided by the council to the hall equated to £97 per voter, and not £145, as we reported. We are happy to clarify the matter.

Report: 78
