Come and say how you feel

We refer to Simon Burns’s letter (Matlock Mercury. March 29, 2012).

As three councillors currently serving on the Darley Dale Town Council, we would like to place on public record that we share many of the concerns raised in Mr Burns’ letter, but as we are currently in a minority on the town council, we would urge all Darley Dale electors with similar concerns to come forward by attending town council meetings to voice their views.

Town council meetings are normally held on the third Thursday each month, at 7pm, at the Whitworth Centre, although the next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 17, at 7pm.

Anyone unable to attend meetings can write to the council and needs to send their letters to The Clerk, Darley Dale Town Council, Whitworth Centre, Darley Dale, Matlock, Derbyshire, DE4 2EQ or email: or alternatively they can contact any of us personally.
