Leader statement on Wilko update

A statement from Cllr James Naish, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council on Wilko’s latest update.

“My thoughts are with everyone impacted by the devastating news about Wilko, especially the thousands of employees who have faithfully continued to serve the public in recent weeks in very difficult circumstances.

“I have been in contact with the Administrators given the Head Office and Distribution Centre are located in Bassetlaw. I appreciate that finding a buyer for the business, or part of the business, is their main priority but we need to actively plan for what happens if this can’t be achieved. 

“I welcome their offer of a meeting and trust that this will be a top priority. This is essential so that the Council can work with its partners and impacted trade unions to help as many affected employees as possible.”
