    No explanation as to why?
    It’s all well and good saying things are happening in Nottingham or at hemlock stone but that’s not Beeston is it? Beeston is dire at the minute, events like Chinese new year celebrations bring us together as a community and are important!

    Liberty leisure are really not representing themselves very well at the minute what with the poor attempt at Christmas etc. As far as residents can see our traditions that bring high spirits (not to mention people into our town) are being shoved aside and ruined.

    Such a shame beeston bid aren’t around anymore, maybe you could take a leaf out of their book?
