Get Surrey has reported on strong comments made by Ray Morgan, Chief Executive of Woking Borough Council.
Apparently he accused the Phoenix of ‘whinging’, ‘moaning’ and ‘rubbishing other organisations’.
I’m sure there has been a misunderstanding here as from my experience the Phoenix organisation has always tried to do the best for music in the Woking area. Phoenix CEO Elaine McGinty didn’t respond directly to the accusations, but said “We have been putting the cultural agenda on the map in Woking and assisting the council in that.”
There’s also an audio of Ray Morgan’s comments to the council.
