The outspoken public relations executive Nicki Page – who organised a packed Penarth Pier Pavilion “SOS” campaign meeting on March 2oth at Stanwell Baptist Church Hall – has now found herself banned from entering Penarth Pier Pavilion.
Ms Page has already been asked leave Penarth Town Council’s HQ at West House and was allegedly threatened that the police would be called when she attempted to pin-up notices inside the council’s premises at The Kymin .
She now claims she has been refused entry to Penarth Pier Pavilion – a public building owned by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and held on a 125 year lease by the “not-for-profit” company Penarth Arts and Crafts Ltd.
A fortnight ago Ms Page had installed a banner across the entrance of Penarth Pier Pavilion – on one of the three days a week it is now closed.
Ms Page has now written to the chairman of Penarth Arts and Crafts, Professor Tony Hazell , asking for an explanation for her exclusion from the Pier Pavilion.
Ms Page was told by the staff who prohibited her from entering the Pavilion – a week ago – that she would receive a letter explaining the decision but says she has not yet received the promised missive.
She says “I have been made to feel an imposter in my own lottery-funded public space” and claims she has been “discriminated against” .
