CLLR TED HARTILL’S SLAPDASH WOODLAND PROJECT MISDIRECTION – EXPOSED EVEN FURTHER
Volunteers at risk of blindness including the children…
More obvious evidence of misdirection at WWP under the hazardous direction of Tory Cllr Ted Hartill and his Woodvale charity, ‘WACA’
Many children and also pets were on site over the months of 2013 when various uninsured power tools, chain saws, drills, etc, were utilised by reckless Tory Cllr Ted Hartill and volunteers who initially ‘trusted’ this man.
The WACA charity and dictators at Sefton Council later made sure that whistle-blowers were ‘Banned’ for simply raising valid concerns including the following.
Improper ‘Duty of Care’ to the group, via placing WWP members (including children) at risk of accident from uninsured usage of power tools (chain saws, drills, strimmers etc) and unauthorised fire starting. Such unauthorised/uninsured equipment practice also of course placed the Council at serious risk of being sued if accidents had occurred
• Failure to keep all concerned stakeholders properly informed about matters that affect the Project
• Direct or indirect misuse of WWP ring-fenced funding, substantiated by other concerned bodies
• Failure to provide the group with all up to date accounting information requested regarding various donations to the group
• Encouragement of WWP and WACA admin members to drive a mechanical digging machine on Council land ‘without’ any training or proper insurance/risk assessment being in place
• Use of the WWP community group to promote private political agenda
WWP also critically questioned Cllr Hartill’s disorganised attitude regarding his responsibility to the team over youth offenders questionably brought into the woodland site, whilst the WWP team were engaged in customary voluntary tasks!
NO HARTILL IN SIGHT, BUT BAD LADS FOR THE VOLUNTEERS TO BABY SIT!
On 26th May 2013 Cllr Hartill did not arrive on the planned Sunday WWP work party. This not only meant that the team was locked out of the tool shed but also that they had to try and direct (without any training or proper authority) two Community Service youth offenders who Cllr Hartill was apparently ‘supposed’ to be supervising.
WWP members were ‘not’ happy at suddenly finding they had to ‘babysit’ unknown youth offenders within the woodlands. That was never part of the original aims of the woodland voluntary project aim. Moreover, did such an eventuality reflect on the Council as it was their land (not WACA’s) that the offenders were brought onto?
Cllr Hartill later apologised via email for his failure to arrive as promised saying he had to, “shoot over to Wales.”
Videos and photos tell the real truth and Sefton Council junta (who own the land) still continues to hide…
Ted Hartill made countless swaggering references to how he was misusing this community project to promote his own political agenda…
Not really that surprising is it that concerned WWP whistle-blowers shouted out loud and clear over Hartill’s appalling game plan, which appears to have been fully supported by his lumbering Tory chief, Terry Jones.
Today the Council, under Margaret Carney and Rajan Paul, happily continue to bury their heads in the sand over Hartill’s tricks.
Meanwhile, Cllr Haydn Preece’s official complaint against Hartill’s Woodvale charity, WACA, is ongoing.
POLITICAL SUPPORTERS OF WWP’S BANNED TEAM
Cllr Preece, and also Cllr Tony Crabtree, in fact has been highly supportive of the banned WWP volunteers.
Hartill also admitted previously that the project would ‘never’ have got off the ground ‘without’ the team who was later outrageously banned – thanks to his self-promoting efforts with his apathetic Council chums…
Moreover, the hesitant Southport Press is fully aware of the WWP evidence at hand, yet unbelievably seems quite content to allow Sefton taxpayers’ money to be squandered like this – WHY?
The whole issue shames Southport!
