500 Signature Talke Petition Handover

A LOVELY DAY HAD BY ALL DURING THE HAND OVER OF OUR PETITION

The 500+ petition against the astonishing decision to decimate our much used, admired and beautiful "Green Space" here at Talke has been handed over to Newcastle Borough Council.  Accepted on behalf of The Council by our local Borough councillor  David Daniels who, along with our other local officials, is absolutely flabbergasted at the unfortunate decision to even consider selling off a unique part of our local history.
