“Should Green Oak C of E Primary School and Nursery be closed?”
Because If it does, it will impact on every other school in Godalming.
Did you know you can organise a Parish referendum on an issue?
Well! The angry parents of Godalming have: Because they are absolutely determined that the honchos at Surrey County Council who believed they could just tick a box marked CONSULTATION and then close their school, have decided to fight for it to continue!
Only five minutes after snatching former Tory-held Godalming Town and Borough Council seats at a recent By-Election, Lib Dem Councillor Paul Follows says:
“A significant lack of transparency, or opportunity to ask questions and debate the issue openly as part of the official consultation has generated a wonderful bit of local democracy in action today – to quote the press release:
Parishioners in Godalming are exercising their right in accordance with the Local Government Act 1972, Schedule 12, Part III to call an Extraordinary Town Meeting on Monday, 9 April 2018 at 7.30pm to be held at the Wilfrid Noyce Centre. The meeting has been called for the purpose of debating the following question: “Should Green Oak C of E Primary School and Nursery be closed?”
So that’s Monday 9th April at 7:30 pm! I will certainly be there.
This issue impacts many local schools as a consequence so I am personally expecting this to draw residents from across Godalming.”
