  1. David & Louise Aldred says:

    The difficulties with the link between Beeston and Wollaton are that they lie in two different local authority areas and have no common school (or other centre of Catholic life).

    As a result the communities are not naturally connected, and whilst the present link works to some extent, it is not based on solid community foundations.

    People from Beeston are probably more likely to have friends and connections in Long Eaton than in Wollaton because of the common primary school (which has been in place for many decades); the same would apply to Wollaton and to its other neighbouring parishes.
