We heard the mutter going on in the Cranleigh gutter from right over here in Farnham yesterday – it was so loud.
Quite a little brew-ha-ha broke out on the Cranleigh Community Board (not to be confused with the Cranleigh Community Group), which we can view – but the other one seemingly run by Cranleigh Parish Councillor Hannah Nicholson, from which we are banned. Aided and abetted by the previous Editor/Controller Martin Bamford – better known in the village as ‘BB ‘Batty Bamford.’
Some of the locals have written to us on our private mail: firstname.lastname@example.org about the Parish councillor shutting down legitimate debate on social media.
For some considerable time, villagers were forced to put up with the constant drip, drip, of drivel that was dispensed by that self-promoting Cranleigh crank, Martin Bamford?
Having set up the Cranleigh Community Board, BB, as he is known locally, threw his toys out of the pram and left the Board when people insisted on posting comments that he and his cronies in the Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce didn’t like or agree with.
Huge sighs of relief all round then!
Then up he pops like Punch and dived back in again, aided by his Judy. Because the rival Cranleigh Community Group, which was set up by Andy Webb to question and debate Bamford and his cronies’ self-interested take on Cranleigh, dared to launch a petition to stop a PRIVATE CARE HOME being built on a site that had formerly been promoted as a REPLACEMENT VILLAGE HOSPITAL.
Then, shock horror, the CCG dared to support bringing back to the eastern villages, a once treasured minor injuries unit, which could become an Urgent Care Centre.
In short, the Village has gone to war several times with Bamford and his cronies and he doesn’t like it. He doesn’t like it one little bit. In fact, he’s fizzing and foaming with fury. He’ gets so cross when his opinions aren’t followed you can hear the elastic in his Y-fronts pinging!
So now when he isn’t putting his oar into the board he still believes he owns – he is busy self-promoting himself on yes, you guessed – the Cranleigh Village HEALTH Trust website! Really – will you stop at nothing BB? Or do you have to pay for services rendered?
