Woburn Lane Funding

Postby Johan » Wed Sep 20, 2017 2:27 pm

From Ben Bradley's Facebook;

"Brilliant to hear that Mansfield Town Football Club has been awarded a grant from the Premier League & The Football Association Facilities Fund, with the Football Foundation and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, to fund a brand new all weather pitch and changing facilities. Great to hear about investment in Mansfield, as well as more positive news for the Stags."

Presumably this is the final piece of the jigsaw?

He's very wisely involving himself in the positivity of at the club and hoping it rubs off on him. It probably will - people in this town have short memories.

The town needs money and regeneration projects and he seems very proactive in trying to do so unlike the previous incumbent , I’d be trying to get the town on the mainline railway only then in my opinion will company’s be willing to invest in the town .

You can't beat a trier fair play to the man he's done more for Mansfield since the election than Meale ticket did in 30 years of stealing a wage from the tax payers....

Can't you see it is central government pulling the strings in a marginal conservative seat.
We might win against Accrington next time.

Posts from Paris Stag and Part time Pete are quite frankly depressing.

I am not a Conservative ( far from it) however this is about having an MP who is interested in regenerating Mansfield and if that involves linking up to the resurgence of the Football Club then so be it.

Rather this than the complacency of the previous incumbent. The new MP is damned either way but for me it's encouraging. I have no interest in the Politics just what I see. If Meale had shown the same enthusiasm he would still be MP.

He's done more to try and help the town in the last few months than Meale did in the last 10+ years... Yet still people moan.

Put aside you're political ties and recognise the effort Ben is making to improve the town and things like the club.

What's Alan Meale ever done for us?

I was gutted that labour lost Mansfield but it's about your MP doing what's best for the people of your town, well done that man at least you are doing your job so credit to you.

But what has he actually 'done' (& I'm not contesting the level of buggerallness Meale did)?

He seems very adept at photobombing the hard work of the Radfords to raise his profile, but I not seeing any evidence of his contribution to either the hotel or Woburn.

He's being smart and tagging himself alongside populist things, its what every new MP up and down the land will be doing now. Literally lifting his finger means he's doing 100% more than Meale did, and Labour lost Mansfield because of Meale, not because of the Labour Party. However, as Pete says - Mansfield will benefit from more central funding and investment, simply due to the fact that its a marginal constituency that the Tories want to keep - you might not like that, and you might see it as people being negative, but not understanding or wanting to believe that doesn't mean that its not happening, because it is and it will.

Don't see anything wrong with MTFC getting benefit from Ben and Ben getting some from MTFC. I asked for his help a few weeks ago, he was busy down in London but got back in touch within 24 hours and problem duly sorted. Some folk at work have had the same good experience unlike a lot of bad experiences with Alan Meale. I have always voted Labour but will vote for Ben next time if he keeps up the good work for myself, the club and the Town over the next few years. I will never go back to Meale.

So Ben Bradley helps the football club out by putting his name to a few projects to get them through planning and gets hounded for it ????

Red or blue who cares right now? You can't change what has happened until his seat is up for re-election. So instead of trying to pull him down and tear him to pieces because his predecessors in central government brought this town to it's knees, we should be supportive of what he is trying to do in regenerating the area, Mansfield being a marginal seat is probably the best thing that could happen, if the government are willing to release £1B for the DUP to keep power, they may spend a little bit to keep Mansfield on side. Win win!

The guy is a new broom, if Mansfield is to benefit then keep sweeping.

What happened 30 odd years ago was tragic but get over it, look forward not backwards.

Mansfield people seem not to like change, well things are changing like it or not.

Torie MP, ok when you have a Torie government, my worst fear is a fullblown Torie Mayor, God forbid that never happens.

To be honest I have no idea who to vote for. In the many years I have voted this is the first time I have felt like this. Why ? Because I don't feel represented by any of the partys. I always vote, but the next time, I will vote for whoever will, in my opinion, help my locality. By the way, I do not live in the Mansfield constituency.

As opposed to Alan 'stick with Keith Haslam, exciting times ahead' Meale, who's contributions at transforming the club & town were about as beneficial as oven-gloves to Pompeians in AD 79 :P

It seems paradoxical that many moan about how decrepit and stagnant Mansfield is, yet wholeheartedly backed the MP that sought to keep it there :eh:
