Re: Former Council Office/ Hebburn Baths Site
When Hebburn & Jarrow had cleared the old housing and built new Estates in the 1950s and became Smokeless Zones, Shields was still in the smoky 1800s. Then disaster struck because we became part of South Tyneside and our money went to help Shields come into the 20th Century with us. The problem was they had no where to put their people when they pulled down their slums, so a lot of Shields people were given houses in Jarrow & Hebburn.
Because their Councillors outnumber ours we stand no chance against them. When South Tyneside Local Authority (that's us aswell
) were given not far off Two Point five Million pounds off the Lottery, what share did Hebburn and Jarrow receive?
We could be far better off if Shields didn't have more Councillors than us cos we'll always be outvoted. Good job we have amazing Volunteers to keep our area clean and tidy.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
