Corby has a massive industrial area and brings loads of jobs there
Do you believe that? I've worked there a lot over the years and its on its backside and has been shafted over the years, similarly to us; and is half the size of Mansfield. Please, nobody can talk up Corby.
Most small towns have at least one national chain hotel - hell, Chesterfield has about four.
Does anyone else work away? If so you'll realise that beds in hotels are always in demand and Mansfield doesn't even have sufficient B&B's never mind anything larger. The fact that MDC has never been able to attract a suitable hotelier is damning of just what a useless sample they are.
I'd like to think that this will be a big project: hopefully there'd be funds to do something like completely level the QLE and build something bigger, better and well equipped, whilst integrating around the hotel - the club day to day facilities could certainly do with being de-Haslamed. Perhaps fill in one of those gigantic gaps between the stands.
However, until the information is less vague ideas and expectations are purely guesswork.
