WE would like to thank Mannie Ketley and Mark Pawsey MP for joining us for a meeting last week.
Mannie is Executive Director on the Senior Management Team at Rugby Borough Council, and Mark has been a constant source of support throughout the campaign.
Both were keen to meet on-site outside the stadium to gain a full understanding of the ongoing security issues being presided over by owners Brandon Estates.
Ironically, police were yet again called on Friday evening to remove youths from inside the stadium, which is no surprise given that the owners continue to display a total disregard for the inconvenience suffered by local residents and the unnecessary strain being put on the emergency services.
It has been clear for years that Brandon Estates have enabled the systematic destruction of the stadium in order to boost their prospects of changing an established and much-loved sporting venue into an unwanted housing development.
We remain determined that these tactics will not succeed, and that one day we will see the return of speedway and stock car racing which should never have been evicted.
