PEOPLE concerned about plans to transfer St Paul’s CE Primary School from Nelson to Brierfield are invited to a meeting on Tuesday.

Lancashire County Council is considering a controversial move of the school from Halifax Road - next to St Paul’s Church - to the former Mansfield High site in Brierfield.

The meeting has been organised by Mr Neil McGowan and a spokesman said: “There is an invitation to any members of the public who would be interested.” He added that could well be parents who children are currently at the school, or others whose children will be pupils in the future.

“It’s a public meeting and they are welcome to come if they are interested in it,” he said.

It takes place in the council chamber at Nelson Town Hall on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
