Councillors: 'Don't close this path'
   Aspull people may be incited to trespass on the grounds of a new school being built there if the Ministry insists on including a well-used public footpath within the school boundary, Aspull councillors said last night.
   The school is being built near Ratcliffe and Stanley Roads. The public footpath runs right along the edge of the proposed school grounds.
   The Ministry intend to take in the footpath. But councillors protested about this and decided to ask the county council to end the school grounds short of the footpath.
   Councillor T. Green said that the boundary of the school should end on the northern side of the footpath.
   "This is a foopath of long standing," he said.
   Councillor J. Higham said the county council ought to agree to satisfy the aggrieved persons. "If this footpath is closed it might have a tendency to incite people to trespass on the school grounds."
   The chairman, Councillor J. Moore, said that an old railway line running parallel to the footpath would still be available.
