Nanny's Bouncers

My sympathies to the elderly members of the Sandyford and Goldenhill Residents' Association who planned to hold a singalong concert at their local community centre, in order to raise money to keep the centre open.

Sadly for them Nanny's chums from Stoke-on-Trent council insisted that they hire two bouncers for the door.


Because there was to be a bar.

Now I can understand that requirement if the event was to be attended by teenagers et al. However, the attendees were expected to be in the 70's and 80's.

Needless to say this insistence that there be two bouncers on the door has put the financial mockers on the event, as the council want to charge £100 for supplying the bouncers.

A cynic might wonder if the council were deliberately trying to sabotage any fund raising activities in order to shut down the community centre.

NB: a decision on the future of the centre will be made in the coming months, after the council looks at its profit and loss.

  1. It is a win/win situation for local Nanny.....Revenue if people book her bouncers.......justification for shutting down a community asset, and thus a liability for Nanny, if they don't.

    I hate local councils.

    Perhaps I'm cynical, but is it possible that someone on the council has a cosy 'arrangement' with a property developer in respect of the site, and are afraid that this event might raise enough money to scupper their plans by actually wiping out the losses on the community centre and putting it into profit? Isn't local 'democracy' wonderful?
