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


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
