Sums up the state of the valley’s villages these days. Closed job centre. There are ‘shiny, new’ Job Centre Plus buildings scattered about the area of course. Unfortunately they don’t have jobs, nor do the staff help the unemployed get work. They are just ‘sanctioning centres’ where staff have targets for how many people they can cut benefits for. Progress or political austerity? Watch ‘I Daniel Blake’, awesome film and spot on from my experience!
