NEWS From Over The FENCE

Some people will remember the days when women stayed at home to work - and men didn't.

Men leant on their shovels putting the world to right, chewing the cud with other Men - and Women leant on the fence putting their Men to right, gossiping with other Women.

Well, men rarely work with shovels these days, but there is still news and gossip to be had over the fence.  And it's available here on CONNECT.

The Police Cannot Be Trusted

The last two years has seen the spotlight placed on the police and that has put them all in a very bad light – most deservedly!

Imprinted on my mind are two images which I feel will remain with me for a long time to come.  They may be imprinted on your mind too - and I give mention to them here – among others.

The State Of The Unions

There is a compelling argument that it was trade unions, not the government, which made the key decisions about how to manage the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK.

At first sight, it may seem that these revelations let the government off the hook.

But, if the unions really DO have so much power that Boris Johnson gave in to them, what does that mean for this country?  Who’s REALLY in charge?

The Snooty Fox - Lowick

The Snooty Fox is a well-known hotel and pub in Tetbury and has been, since God was a boy.  So, when I saw the name come up, I was immediately captured by the story posted by the satirical and current affairs journal, Private Eye, on their special page - page 94.

The story was not about OUR Snooty Fox but another one near Kettering in Northamptonshire.  Knowing this had to be an interesting piece, coming from editor Ian Hislop, I had to dive in.

The Centre Of The NHS 

I was amazed to read in the Tetbury Advertiser that our town raised over a million pounds to buy our hospital in 1992, to save it from being closed.

This extraordinary feat of community spirit and collaboration is even more incredible because it took place thirty years ago - when a million pounds was worth a lot more than it is now.
Reading this led me to wonder – what can we, as a town, do NOW to improve our health and wellbeing?
