WELL, the Lush Places parish plan questionnaires are being collected.
An army of village elves is out and about, picking up our forms to find out what we want and when do we want it (now!).
Busy little souls are already plotting to open Lush Places’ very own community shop. And several nights of drunken mayhem will be taking place in the village hall in the lead-up to Christmas, now that the pub is closed. I can hardly contain myself.
But what’s really fired my imagination is a response to one of the questions on the parish plan questionnaire: ‘What do you think would be a good use of the Lush Places common?’
Answer: ‘An ice skating rink, polo and dogging.’
Which is all very well, but you would think the person who filled in the form would have had more courage than to leave it ready for collection outside their elderly neighbour’s front door.
I will never look at the church organist in the same light again. And I’ll certainly think twice before shining a torch in his car if he ever breaks down late at night.
