Tetbury mayor Ann Pearce has made the following statement.

"Over the past few weeks the council has been victim to a sustained social media campaign by representatives of the DRC.

"The campaign seems to have evolved into an intolerable tirade of personal attacks on my own capabilities as mayor of Tetbury.

"The statement made by myself at the last full council meeting regarding the EGM due to be held was made in good faith.

"It was my belief that after receiving an information pack re the S106 monies and all other related material, that six councillors would be able to call an EGM, to do this councillors need to be able to justify their reasons to the CEO of the town council who then makes a decision as to whether the said meeting can proceed, it is then up to the CEO to call the meeting, issue and display an agenda.

"However, due to an unprecedented amount of emails and correspondence being received from some trustees, CDC have offered to give the CEO and the town council some clarity, this offer to the CEO was made after my statement at the last full council.

"It is disappointing that the chair of the DRC Trustees has issued such damning statements on several Facebook posts about my ability to lead the council effectively without understanding that neither the calling or allowance of an EGM are the responsibility of the mayor, and if our CEO and responsible finance officer feels that the information being received from Cotswold District Council will be of benefit, then that advice will be received before the calling of the EGM.

"This is not a delaying tactic of any councillors, this is a process that needs to be followed in line with undertaking our due diligence.

"The personal attacks are having a profound effect on my family and wider families lives, whilst I accept as mayor that I’m a public figure, I do not accept that the “job” comes with the right for others to bully or intimidate on social media platforms."

The Tetbury Lions Club have been severely affected by Covid-19 like many other charities.

Their Christmas and Easter raffles, Tombola and bucket collections have been disrupted leaving them struggling to help local causes.

So they have created the Tetbury Lions Auction page to replace the annual Christmas raffle.

Thanks to the generosity of local shops, companies and individuals they are collecting some great donations which they will be selling by auction.

If you would like to bid for any item(s) in the online auction just join the group and they will let you know when the first auction starts.

Alan Greenway one of the pages admins said@ "We have been amazed at the response."

For more information, please visit Tetbury Lions Auctions on Facebook.

At the recent Heritage and Regeneration meeting of Tetbury Town Council, it was decided to support Remembrance Day and this year's poppy appeal by having poppy's to print out and colouring the same as the very successful supporting NHS rainbow.

It was very appropriate to show our support for our current working NHS staff in this way so it will be very appropriate to remember and show our support for those whose sacrifice gave us the blanket of freedom we all enjoy today.

Making sure that we and future generations will never forget.
