Note on the Basingstoke Gazette Article dated 23rd December 2009.
“Extra tennis court plan under spotlight”
The Odiham Parish Council Meeting of 14th December was attended by a reporter from the Basingstoke Gazette. An article about the “Third Court Proposal” appeared in the 23rd December edition of the Gazette.
The article was banner headlined as “Extra tennis court plan under spotlight”. The article presented the proposal in a favourable light and was a fair report of the proceedings.
There were a couple of small factual errors in that the proposed location of the new court will require the beacon to be re-sited. Also, the observation on increasing membership relates to changes in numbers over a couple of years and did not emanate from the questionnaire.
