The revelation was made by Cllr Rhiannon Birch (Labour Cornerswell) in this week’s full council meeting in which she reported that she had just come from a meeting of Cogan School Governors.

Cllr Birch said that over the Easter Holiday lead had been taken from one of the roofs of  the school leaving the building vulnerable to water damage. The building contained all next year’s exercise books.

She told councillors that the cost of repairs – which had only just been completed – had amounted to over £5,500.
