A Note from PACL

Posted:
Apr 14, 2017

Some of you may have seen the following statement on the Penarth Daily News website:

“Penarth Arts and Crafts Ltd (a.k.a. PACL) – the not-for-profit “charity” which holds the lease of Penarth Pier Pavilion – has refused to hold a meeting with Penarth Town Council on the future of the Pavilion.”

We wish to make it clear that this is totally inaccurate. On 7th April we received a request from Cllr Cuddy to meet Labour members of the Town Council.

As a registered charity PACL must remain totally non-political. We therefore replied that it would be inappropriate for us to meet with councillors from one particular political party, particularly in the context of the forthcoming council elections. We did add that we hoped to be in a position to report publicly on the progress made on our plans for the long-term future of the Pavilion in the near future and that we would be happy for that information to be shared by candidates from all political parties. On 10th April we received a reply from the Council Leader to say that he understood our position. It is therefore most disappointing that other Labour councillors chose, for whatever reason, to make the totally misleading claim subsequently reported by PDN.
