Statement from the Town Council
East Grinstead Town Council fulfils a positive role at the heart of the community. Its functions are primarily providing services which enhance the local area; such as burial grounds, entertainment, civic pride and community buildings.
At the most recent Council meetings (8th and 29th January 2024), the Council heard a number of personal experiences laid as allegations which the Town Council does not have the powers to act on. As such we continue to urge the individuals concerned to address the allegations to the correct authority: The Police.
In order to protect those individuals making the allegations and given the nature of accounts, we have been advised that it is not appropriate for the comments to be published and/or shared on video sharing platforms. This is in the event that the content is proven to be defamatory and so as not to undermine any potential legal proceedings on the allegations in the future.
The Town Council and Councillors strongly deny any inappropriate relationship with any community group.
