Rose Tinted Rags faces closure

Hereford Times: The group could close if it cannot find a new home. The group could close if it cannot find a new home.

ONE of the county’s newest social enterprises faces closure if it cannot find a new home.

Rose Tinted Rags – a partnership project between Leominster charity ECHO and the Green Eyed Monster arts company – claims Herefordshire Council has told the group to leave its current premises on Aylestone Hill in the city.

The textile-arts centre sells recycled and vintage fabrics and haberdashery, runs arts workshops and provides work placements for adults with learning disabilities.

ECHO chief officer Fiona Ritchie said the group is now appealing for help in finding a new home in a central location.

Fiona confirmed the group would close should it fail to find a new site.

Tony Featherstone, from Herefordshire Council, said Rose Tinted Rags does not have a lease for the site and only a 24-hour notice period is required.

The authority, he added, has instead provided nine weeks notice and is working with the group to find new premises.

To help Rose Tinted Rags, call 01568 620307.

The above is a typical reply from a jumped up Officer of this Council . Where is the caring part of Society - it's gone under the modern Council Officer training. That's a pity , the management of change should always be handled properly , in this case I do not think that it has .

And why is this being done you may ask? Because of the Road To Nowhere, that's why.
To ensure we feed this salty hulk with our low disposable income they want to build this road. No matter what impact it is going to have upon the many traders along its route, the Council have got the wind in their sales and they are determined to flatten the route. This is why Rose Tinted Rags must go. Another trader along the route, bereft of hope and fearful for the future has given up and once RTR are evicted, the new trader will move in and trade from the Tann Brook Centre.
The very same logic and thinking went into the acquisition of Rockfield Road Car Park which now stands alone as a monument to stupidity. Over six million quid that cost us and only fifty yards away, they intend to repeat their mistake, albeit less costly, and rid themselves of a place that provides love, care, friendship and training to our brothers and sisters who suffer with a disability.
As far as the Road To Nowhere is concerned, it ain't getting built anytime soon. In fact, if the Royal Mail play hardball, and Jonathon Bretherton would advise them to do just that, then this road may not get built within the next two or even three years.
It's madness. This little slice of heaven, Rosé Tinted Rags, simply need time. Time to find new premises and time to move all their materials, fittings and furnishings out. They cannot do this with an axe over their necks and a time limit of eight weeks. What's needed? A little bit of kindness and commonsense which, when you are dealing with the Council, our bureaucratic monster juggernaut, are the two human traits you ain't going to get at easily.
I've got Mr Jesse Norman MP looking at this, I've got Councillor Chris Chappell working hard on this, the social network sites have been bombarded and Im posting the Council messages each day of the week pleading for more time and a little understanding. Where's it bloody getting me? Bloody nowhere fast. This Council have to be dragged screaming to a keyboard to even bother answering a simply question.
Im pleading with them to bring this matter to the attention of the Chief Executive Mr Neill. Can I get these public servants to say,'yes, we'll do that'?
Can I heckers like. It's near on impossible to get anyone withing that hive of public service to display any kind of urgency and understanding.
They simply do not care. The pyramid of public service has been turned upon its head and now see's us, the ones who reside outside the public service bubble as serving them rather than the other way round. This culture has crept down from the top of the public service foodchain and has now infected many who are at the bottom resulting in a 'couldn't care less attitude' that ain't helpful when you are trying to convince the Council that they do not need to evict RTR with such haste.
Truthfully, there is no rush at all. None whatsoever. All they need to do is wait for RTR to find new premises that meet their needs and then allow them to go without a date hanging over their heads. That's it. Nothing else. But can you get the Council to take a backward glance at their recklessly hasty decision? Bloody no! They simply do not care about people. We are their host, we fuel their gravey train and we don't matter. Nothing we say, think or do, matters to the Council.
Rockfield Road DIY didn't matter to them and Rose Tinted Rags is on course to be the second business ruined by this chaotic and deluded Council and unless we halt this slide toward madness, this little business, that provides nothing but good , will go belly up and be lost to us all forever!
I want Mr Neill to get involved in this matter and, having realised the mistake, I want him to drag these incompetent bungling idiot Officers into his room and simply say, 'Give Rosé Tinted Rags more time. There really is no rush to ruin them'.
That's it! It ain't difficult is it?

It is not difficult for any sane or normal person, no. But as sure as night follows day, we can rely on this wretched council to make an ill considered snap decision and no matter what, they will not veer from it. They’ll ride it out, they'll hide behind their policies and this that and the other. They'll wriggle like a maggot on the end of bobby47's rod but they will NOT back down, apologise or change course. They'll spin it every which way - as in 'we could have kicked them out in 24 hours but we gave them 9 weeks' -but change their approach? Never. Too arrogant, too stupid, whichever you want to look at it. At the end of it, I'll guarantee they'll trot out the standard 'lessons have been learned and new procedures put in place' that is always trotted out.

I suggest that the reason is that if they can relocate a business which is subject to the link road cpo to where RTR are then that removes an objection to the cpo process. Sound reasoning but it ignores the plight of the temporary tenant.

Aylestone Voice, Yes, that is exactly what has happened. This little company ain't fighting their eviction. They've no problem with that. It's the time. Initially, the Council told them to clear off in six weeks, then, presumably after a distressed phone call, they extended it to eight.
Eight to some, might not seem that bad given they've used the premises rent free and RTR have always appreciated this discount by the Council, but to find a new home, to organise themselves, move all their materials, equipment and keep the staff, the customers and the vulnerable all in the loop and reassured that the future is bright, is near on impossible without causing a great deal of distress.

Err drjazz. I don't think you understand.
The story concerns Herefordshire Council's decision to evict a Charitable concern with a very short notice period.

If you comment on this story you would either agree strongly with the councils decision, so you might say "bloomin freeloaders, why should tax payers support them etc etc"
Or strongly disagree, "where is the caring social attitude etc etc"

Either way you have to comment on the council as it is the subject of the article.

Your point seems to be little more than sniping at people who you have some general disagreement with rather than any sort of comment on the article.

It would be so lovely if they could say to RTR yes we have found other suitable centrally located premises/we will help you to relocate and we will ask a nominal rent. How much would all that cost - a drop in the ocean. With all the cutbacks the Councils have been forced to make a lot of vulnerable and disadvantaged people now rely on the excellent work charities do.

Yes we have a Chief Executive and, if as I hope, he gets involved and aids the good people from Rosé Tinted Rags, I'll fight any man who says he's a rotter.
Mind, if he doesn't get involved and fails to help the good people of Rosé Tinted Rags then I'll seek him out and fight him myself.
I've got the tools to do the job. He doesn't scare me. Never has and never will.
My Grandmother, a highly promiscuous woman was a fan of the fight game and before she left me, slid down the Wye banks and hurtled into the water to begin her journey to Symonds Yatt, she handed me a small box. In it I found a hand written note, which read, 'whilst I've allways despised you, you horrid runt of our litter, I've allways liked Mr Neill. If ever you have to fight him, this is for you'.
Inside the box , after rummaging about and reading her love letters to at least a thousand men who all lived within close proximity to the Sexual Diseases Clinic, I found a gum shield, a huge pair of boxing gloves and a vast pair of shorts that come up to my armpits.
It's these tools that I'll use if ever Im required to fight Mr Neill outside Plough Lane. And anyone who says I'll chicken out is someone who doesn't know how determined I am to see Rosé Tinted Rags be given enough time to move their business elsewhere..
And if he's reading this, and I've no evidence that'll suggest he would even bother, I'd appreciate if he could refrain from hitting me to hard. I've got an unusually low pain threshold, a glass jaw and Im a bleeder.
Mind, if he is as I hope he is, a yellow bellied canvas kisser, he'll rue the day he got into the ring with me. I'll dance, i'll bob and we've and then I'll punch him so hard he'll be required to pay to get back into the building.
Mind, all this violence will be unnecessary if the Council extend the time that is required to secure the future of this wonderful little business.

Never has and never will. My Grandmother, a highly promiscuous woman was a fan of the fight game and before she left me, slid down the Wye banks and hurtled into the water to begin her journey to Symonds Yatt, she handed me a small box. In it I found a hand written note, which read, 'whilst I've allways despised you, you horrid runt of our litter, I've allways liked Mr Neill. If ever you have to fight him, this is for you'. Inside the box , after rummaging about and reading her love letters to at least a thousand men who all lived within close proximity to the Sexual Diseases Clinic, I found a gum shield, a huge pair of boxing gloves and a vast pair of shorts that come up to my armpits. It's these tools that I'll use if ever Im required to fight Mr Neill outside Plough Lane. And anyone who says I'll chicken out is someone who doesn't know how determined I am to see Rosé Tinted Rags be given enough time to move their business elsewhere.. And if he's reading this, and I've no evidence that'll suggest he would even bother, I'd appreciate if he could refrain from hitting me to hard. I've got an unusually low pain threshold, a glass jaw and Im a bleeder. Mind, if he is as I hope he is, a yellow bellied canvas kisser, he'll rue the day he got into the ring with me. I'll dance, i'll bob and we've and then I'll punch him so hard he'll be required to pay to get back into the building. Mind, all this violence will be unnecessary if the Council extend the time that is required to secure the future of this wonderful little business. bobby47
