An MP has launched a furious attack on local government regeneration chiefs after west Cumbria lost the chance to host the 2013 Rugby League World Cup due to plans for a new £5.5 million stadium stalling.
Have your say
Elise what are you talking about rugby non existant ? we have some of the best rugby league amature clubs going last season had the 9s comp with them doing very well its the council that has let this world cup bid pass us by just like asda.but a better club is needed if Haven need to progress, and its things like a whitehaven bypass that will not help any growth in the town but pass us by. i dont know why the council were trusted to plan a stadium when theyv made a complete pigs ear of the town
Rugby like most things in Whitehaven is non existant; other cities and towns have an ability to look beyond the present and not the past. A all round facility such as the one in Hexham would have made all the difference; something for all. Once again Cumbria really is on the back foot; and when the lights are turned off remember to close the door as well.
Who cares may be now the money will be spent on some other part of west cumbria instead of whitehaven hogging all the cash as per usual, may be the roads in west cumbria could be done up or heres a thought build a by pass round whitehaven then us folk who dont think its the centre of the universe wont have the miss fortune of having to drive anywhere near it. This whole scheme was simply a look at us whilst the miners part was pure greed. Whitehaven through and through
