A MEETING OF OAKHAM TOWN COUNCIL’S STAFFING COMMITTEE WEDNESDAY 2ND MAY 2012 AT 7.00PM VICTORIA HALL, 39 HIGH STREET, OAKHAM AGENDA


What I cant understand is why when our Mayor publicly stated her disapproval regarding the Clerks
constant absences, this still continues many months on.

The Council finally agreed a sickness policy, after many years of not having one.The policies look good on paper, but they are no good if you don't put them into practice.

The tax payer is paying the Clerk over the odds and is getting a raw deal. He himself said very few residents
visit the office and this I am sure helped with the decision to open the office less.

When the clerk is often absent the role is completed by his part time assistant I think that sums up his overpaid role.

Over 80% over the precept goes on administrating the council and most of that is made up of the Clerks wage. If this was a commercial company the Town Council would have been put into administration years ago.

I also find it difficult ot understand why when the Clerk is off sick on a Monday or Friday he can visit the office to print a notice of explanation and post it on the office door?

Many residents maybe surprised to know the Clerks role is full time and his take home pay is over £2,000 a month.

If you have ever had the pleasure of speaking to him on the phone when you have mistakenly called the town council instead of the county council, you may have experienced his rather rude telephone manner, which I personally have witnessed on a number of occasions.

Oakham Town Council Spend £1000+ to Raise £300 for Oakham Royal British Legion.

Oakham Town Council Spend £1000+ to Raise £300 


for Oakham Royal British Legion. 


Freedom of Information Request: Oakham Town Council Mayor Councillor Joyce Lucas Civic Party Cost?

On the 29th March 2012 Oakham Town Councillor and Mayor Joyce Lucas held a Civic Party.

Quoted in the Rutland Times published on-line on the 4th April 2012 as saying:

“It has been a wonderful day for me, my family and the town."


"Me" of course being the normal egotistic side of Cllr Lucas.

As for the town? I can not find how in anyway a party paid for by the tax payer, exclusively for Cllr Lucas's invited friends and family can be of any benefit for our Town?

I will be asking the Cllr Lucas to explain this benefit at the Town Meeting on May 9th.

Cllr Lucas has broken her pledge  made to tax payers, she said many times in public, she would not spend tax payers money on booze and food like her predecessors and mentioned bring and share at the civic carol service. My freedom of information request and a local photographers photographs show she and her guests enjoyed an evening of pure greed.

Her deputy Cllr Charles Haworth returned home late that night, clearly intoxicated and sent me a rather rude email. I imagine in her mind that was the benefit for the town?

Cllr Lucas is also quoted in the Rutland Times:

"A collection was held in aid of the British Legion, which raised almost £300."

Why can she never give a full figure when asked how much she has raised?

It reminds me of the time, she had a tombola at Victoria Hall and she wrote to me and told me the figure
raised had increased by £5. Because she had found a note in her husbands pocket? I am not sure why it
was in his pocket when they had the use of a designated cash box?

The civic party has cost the tax payer over £1,000 this is one example of why Oakham Town Councils
Precept is so high. During these difficult times for all this is a disgrace! In here mind it does not matter because she raised around £300 for a good cause.

I have received the following costs from my Freedom of Information request, showing some of the cost to the tax payer, .

Wine and orange juice and Drinks £217.64


Chocolate Shot Glasses £61.35 (if your going to knock back spirits paid for by the poor tax payer why not do it in style?)

Food and Cling Film £287.28


A special cake was commissioned. Reason? Cost £60.00


Platter and Plates £39.72


Laminating of Invites and Place Cards £9.99


Plants and Food £14.50


Church Hire £25.00


Flowers for Church £60.00


Order of Service Printing £169.23


There is also the cost of the Castle Hire for the party.
Details of this cost have not been provided because the 
invoice has not been paid yet.


I attempted to make a second call to the Town Clerk at the Councils Office
to find out the cost of the Castle Hire.
He did not answer the phone.


At the party The Mayor also gave her Volunteer of the Year Award to Angie Humphreys.
wife of a ex Town Councillor and mother of Tim who used to run the Rutland Chat Forum
used by people connected to this rotten council, to attack me in a most vile fashion.
No details have been supplied relating to the cost of the gift Angie Humphreys received paid for
by the tax payer. It never surprises me how Oakham Town Council continues to reward its own
if it opened its eyes and served the town instead of itself maybe in future, awards could go to
ordinary people, who do do good in our community and don't seek weekly publicity for that work
via the Rutland Times?

Our new Inspector believes in Zero Tollerance
This is why he is trying  Leicestershire's New Robo Cops
with bikes... 


It was a busy day for crowd control...


A road block was set up just outside Oakham Town 
Councils Office and there was a heavy police presence

I was told this was an exercise in preparation 
for the forthcoming Town Meeting to be
held on the 9th May at 6pm

After the Mayor has told all what she wants to say
the public can tell the council what it thinks.

I have been told by a least one member of the public they
may be telling the council what they think of them.

Another is planning to put their complaints and thoughts
into a poetry, so it should be a good evening for all.

(I am told he suffered this injury arresting a shop lifter at the local primary school tuck shop 
Oakham Police Station was closed so I am unable to confirm this)
