Who would have believed it? A councillor makes two quotes about the same subject (Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field in Spalding) and they are not the same.
In November Coun Nick Worth said a “playing field” indicates public use for sport as teams or individually, rather than for activities such as walking or enjoying the surroundings.
However, in a February 2001 edition of the Free Press, Coun Worth states: “Consultants will look at the wider recreational use of the field. I believe it should be available for all the public.”
Why do they require a QC to fight against the beneficiaries for something that already should be open to the public?
