Shropshire Reports

Telford, Shropshire

Review of Telford by Oliver Pickmere on September 12th, 2008
Yes, I know Telford from my R.A.F. Service at R.A.F. Shawbury. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the Council would issue such an idiotic decree, asking what people without children are doing in the Parks under their jurisdiction. If I was asked that question by some jobsworth I tell them that it was no business of theirs. I served on a Minesweeper in the Royal Navy during the War. Sometimes when I read of stupid decisions such as this, I almost wish that we'd lost. Oliver Pickmere, 99 Pennine Way, Harlington, Hayes, Middx. UB3 5LJ
