Save Our Swifts!

Save Our Swifts. In recent months, Kevin and Mandy Swift, Managers of the Harewood Arms public house in Broadbottom, Cheshire have been alleged to have misappropriated funds, misused stock and failed to deliver acceptable standards of service by their Employing company, who have undergone several name changes, but have continually been Owned and Operated by Mike Radcliffe, currently operating under the title of BAC Properties Ltd. To this date, 28/02/2008, no evidence whatsoever has been provided by said Employing Company with respect to any of the alleged charges, despite numerous requests, yet repeated threats of Eviction and Criminal Prosecution have been levied against Kevin and Mandy. Since their arrival within the community the Swifts have transformed the Harewood Arms into an establishment of unrivalled quality within the community. The aim of this petition is to allow the local community of patrons of the Harewood Arms to voice their disapproval at the treatment of Kevin and Mandy by their employers and to affirm that the wishes of the local community are that Kevin and Mandy be given direct stewardship of the Harewood Arms at the earliest opportunity by the owner of the property, Enterprise Breweries.

    6 years ago Comments: Without Prejudice. After reading the details stated on this petition regarding the issue surrounding the Harewood Arms. I am not supprised at the comments made by the customers. However the facts on this petition are incorrect. Before setting up a petition you should aquire all the correct facts and not listen to one side of a story. 1. Bac Propertys do not own the Harewood and have never owned the Harewood. 2. Mike Radcliffe did not at any time accuse the Swifts. 3.The Swifts have been furnished with the details and evidence relating to the misappropriation of company funds. the same evidence was given to the police in January 2008. The Swifts had copies of all the papers at the same time. 4. We did not threaten the Swifts with criminal prosecution, but in view of all the evidence we had at hand, the company felt that they had to involve the police. This was action not a threat. 5.We have never denied that Kevin & Mandy were anything but good managers and we also agree they did a good job. We have never said that they have failed in the service they provide. 6. We must act on the evidence we have in relation to this issue, and as a company we have acted on this evidence. 7. I Mike Radcliffe have been extreemly courtious to the Swifts and at no time have I accused them of any wrong doings. 8. The Swifts have never denied the misappropriation of company money or given an explination as to what happened. 9. Due to legal reasons I am unable to say any more. It is up to the courts to get to the truth then we will stand up and be counted. 10. The Harewood was run by the company that put the Swifts in as mangers all the support to keep this pub open was financed by the company, not the Swifts. 11. I Mike Radcliffe also live in the village, I have drank in the Harewood and I am aware of the efforts Kevin & Mandy put in. On a personal note I like Kevin & Mandy but I must act responsible as a director of a limited company. 12. If the Swifts feel wrongly done by why have they not gone to a tribunal.
