I have heard that the grounds workers at Brandon Town Council have been told not to work (but are still being paid) due a some health and safety issue.

Anyone know more?

 I hope your not expecting a reply from one of the elected councilors or the town clerk Terry ? It's probably  nothing serious, just an attempt to bring them in line with Brandon Town Councils work ethic  ;-)

Funny you should mention that valleybe, I've just  " stumbled " across some very interesting information with regards to breaching Health & Safety at Work and it seem that EVERY ELECTED COUNCILOR AND THE TOWN CLERK " need to start taking the position they hold a damned sight more seriously than they appear to do currently, instead of perceiving that position as personal privilege that empowers them to do as they please with impunity!  That's because "They" the Town Council " as a corporate body" employ the town clerk as a line manager, to oversee the actions of all staff employed, this includes the ground workers mentioned. As employers, they are the persons that are "LEGALLY " accountable should  their employee's fail to carry out their duties in accordance with set procedures and guidelines and are responsible for their employee's safety and that of the public that may be affected by their actions or omissions. 
So! with that in mind, I'm sure those holding the positions mentioned above don't need me to remind them who they are, might like to consider just how seriously they intend to take the positions they were elected to hold and stop flopping about like a wet fish in an India flip flop factory  before you end up pleading to a Crown Court Judge that your impotence to discharge your duty as an employer was because.... Doh ...????  i'm just a Town Councillor your Honour ?

Oh Dear! here's hoping someone just "forgot" to provide steel toe capped flip flops and  not someone's child lost an eye on the way to school while the groundsmen where strimming the grass!

Now I hear that two councillors are off with stress and another has been sent home.

Things are not going well there at the moment!
