Hillsborough and the Sun newspaper – It would be hard to make this up – What on earth did our political leaders think they were doing?

DID THEY THINK AT ALL?

Here is the sad, sad story as carried by the BBC.

Lydiate Parish Council to plant 96 trees in memory of Hillsborough victims

The last meeting of Lydiate Parish Council agreed to plant 96 trees on its Lambshear Lane ‘Village Centre’ site in memory of the 96 people killed as a consequence of the Hillsborough disaster.

Sadly, a Lydiate resident was one of the people to be lost in the disaster and of course there will be other Lydiate residents linked to families who lost loved ones on that terrible day.

Cllr. Dave Russell, Chairman of the Parish Council, proposed the project be taken forward and it got unanimous support from the Parish Council members.
