Ruskin Mill is a magical, beautiful and interesting realm.

I thank them for letting us share in their creativity and endeavors.

I heard that they are going to be running the Forest Green Community Centre.

Yes, magical would be the right word.

Magic, the art of subterfuge, misdirection and illusion.

Just ask Derren Brown.

I have an autistic brother and somewhere like Ruskin Mill would have been a wonderful place for him to have gone should it have been around in the seventies. It's easy for for the naive and ignorant to condemn Ruskin Mill and shallowly judge some of the people who work there on thier appearence. Perhaps take the time to go and find out what they actually do for young people with special needs. The Midland fishery was a complete mess for a number of years and the whole valley has been transformed in to a beautiful landscape. Many people come from miles around to visit the Mill and Ruskin Mill has become a sizeable employer which should be welcomed in these hard economic times. Focus on what they have achieved and what they have been able to offer rather than focusing your jealosy and inability to welcome and embrace change.

I doubt your brother, Mr C, would ever have got funding to come to the delightful Ruskin Mill as whilst it is indeed a lovely place - the fees per student per year are astronomic. I find it quite incredible that local authorities are able to find the sums needed to fund each placement.

I'd be really interested to know if the financial pinch ever gets felt at the mill?

That's a defence I see trotted out on this forum regularly. It doesn't stand up to much scrutiny.

Because an organisation gets one or more endeavours right does that mean that the organisation should be immune from criticism for all of its activities?

Should we always 'welcome and embrace change' just because it is 'change'?

BTW, describing people as being autistic is meaningless. It is a spectrum disorder which covers an extremely wide range of abilities. I know a large number of VERY high functioning 'Aspies'. They are amongst the most intelligent people I know and are very successful in their chosen fields. Of course, many other people on the spectrum are severely disabled.

1 in 64 of the UK population are reckoned to 'suffer' from an ASD. I personally score quite highly on AQ tests. I'm not deemed to be disabled.

This thread was originally about plans for further development of the valley. There is a good chance that the Ruskin Millers are getting a bit carried away and are in danger of over-egging the pudding. They need to understand that they need to retain the support of the local population, not alienate it by acting as empire builders.

They wouldn't be the first organisation in the area to make that mistake.

Thank you so much to the previous NR for summing up exactly how I feel, I'm not saying we should shut down Ruskin Mill I'm just saying I don't want them "empire building". It is a nice place to visit but that doesn't give them the right to go around building and buying whatever they want.

Last time I checked anybody can buy pretty much whatever they want within reason!

Yes they can (as could you), subject to obtaining the appropriate planning permission.

THEY whoever they are!! planned and built the new police station in Stroud the Shopping precinct the car park the woolworths building and now the cinema. All pretty horrible and unlikely to become listed buildings. So yes it is clear you can build anything anywhere and anyhow.

That is,if you wish to retain any shred of intellectual honesty.

No, it turns out to be yes as I posted previously as long as they have the appropriate permissions.

Why don't you take it with the mill owners? I'm sure they can furnish you will all the appropriate paperwork and if they can't then take it with the local planning office.

Goodness! Far better to post anonymously on a forum than complain directly.

What are you thinking!
