Cllr Harper was recently caught napping (for several years) over the planning application by a Mr Hussain for a huge industrial ritual slaughterhouse for chickens soon to be housed on our doorstep with the smell wafting all over Cardea and Stanground.
|This award presented to Julian Bray |
on behalf of Park Farm, however Harper still has it.
Cllr Harper professes not to know that the Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch is alive and thriving and is run on social media lines through the Peterborough Tribune (hits 722,837) Website Possibly, as Cllr Harper ( hits 235 ...)denies many of his poorly represented residents access to his social media accounts, he thinks he can continue to pull the wool over residents eyes and trouser many thousands in councillor allowances and many thousands more for committee work ... cushty!
What Cllr Harper does not say is that he widely trumpeted his Neighbourhood Watch had some 500 members ( and we all believed him!), when in reality it just briefly scraped into three figures, we later had sight of the actual membership list, and as for the accounts, at one time Mr Christopher Harper had thousands in the PFNW account, but then some two years before he dumped the PFNW, the bank account was drained down to about £60 by gifting nearly £1,500 of Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch funds to the.....wait for it Peterborough City Council, where he was set to run for council!
Not for a moment are we suggesting, he corruptly purchased his seat on the council with Neighbourhood Watch funds, but when we formally asked for the Neighbourhood Watch funds back from the PCC, even quoting the PCC receipt number, answer was there none.
Cllr Harper also makes great play of his Respect award during his councillor selection process and it featured large in his election manifesto.
This is what he says:
"Awards received are Service to the Community Award from Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Government Respect Award for taking a stand against ASB and the Heart Heroes Award for Best Community"
How amazed were we to find this was an award promoted and signed by Labours' Tony Blair, however the then plain Chris Harper had crudely altered the picture to remove any trace. Yes we ALL were totally fooled by it!
We reproduce the certificate issued to a real neighbourhood champion Ann Edwards who was justly proud to exhibit her award.
|The crudely censored RESPECT certificate and publicity banner, removing all references to Tony Blair used by Cllr Chris Harper CON South Stanground and featured in his many websites and on his party political sites.|
What he does not have is the smelly and nasty ** attack aerosol noxious sprays he was intending to arm his STREET PATROL 'thugs' with. The Police stepped in and finally confiscated the aerosols from Christopher Harper. All this seemingly hushed up. You'll understand why we subsequently wished to have nothing to do with him.
Meanwhile The Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch has continued over the years as a wholly independent privately funded scheme, responsible for multiple evidence submissions from our supporters to police, so much so that minimotos, motorcycles have decamped from Park Farm and all but cleared off to South Stanground ie Cardea. Perhaps the South Stanground councillors should try much harder? What do you think?
We run our Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch scheme, as far apart from the moribund county group as we could get it, but operate on agreed Home Office guidelines specially produced and written for us by the Home Office and our Member of Parliament. Cllr Harper is well aware of this, so why is he so blinkered?
We make the point on the national website that Cllr Harper is not welcome within our scheme. That still remains the position. Cllr Harper really needs to pull his socks up, he is in our view a sorry excuse for a Conservative councillor.
His good friend Conservative - the criminally convicted Cllr Peter Hiller - you will recall was found guilty in the courts of criminal damage, and fined heavily following a trial although he pleaded not guilty and it went to a full trial, and cost many thousands in terms of public money spent on it.
Clearly the odd couple are welcome to each other! But it does mean that you dear resident, should be aware of the truth. Sadly we are unable endorse Cllr Christopher Harper, and feel very sorry for our local MP who has to deal with him.
Amusingly we spotted Cllr Harper on the 25th April stuffing leaflets through doors in our street. For some reason he deliberately missed out our letterbox, but neighbours quickly supplied a copy. The leaflet relates to the chicken slaughter farm. simply Cllr Harper was caught napping (for several years) over the planning application by a Mr Hussain for a huge industrial ritual slaughterhouse for chickens soon to be housed on our doorstep with the smell wafting all over Cardea and Stanground. He is now belatedly trying to claim back the credit, we didn't see his illusory teams of volunteers either...
