Parish Council rejects Village Hall accusation of website bias
Recent issues of the ‘Church & Village Newsletter’ have included reference to a complaint made by the Village Hall Committee against the village website alleging bias in reporting of the Snooker Club closure issue. The Parish Council considered this complaint and unanimously found it was without foundation. Nevertheless the Parish Council took independent advice from YCLA and Leeds City Council who both endorsed this site as meeting all requirements.
Consequently, the Parish Council sent a letter to the Chairman of the Village Hall committee stating it backed the editorship of the website and believed it to be a successful and valued asset which demonstrates balanced editorial control.
