Michelle Alford was Shaftesbury’s 1975 carnival queen. Michelle stood up at Tuesday’s Shaftesbury Town Council meeting to proudly tell councillors so. And she had a clear message for them.
Michelle wants their squabbling and in-fighting to end. She also wants parts of Shaftesbury spruced up for visitors. And Michelle insisted that councillors drop their current trend to refer to the lawn at Castle Hill as ‘Castle Green’.
Cllr Piers Brown responded to Michelle’s request to stop changing the name, as you’ll hear.
