NA­TIONAL CAM­PAIGN FOR COUR­TESY

Evergreen - - News -

Stal­wart chair­man Peter G. Foot is re­tir­ing and we thank him for his hard work down the years. Among the lat­est ar­ti­cles in their mag­a­zine Cour­tesy Call is one pay­ing trib­ute to a former pa­tron, the late Rachael Hey­hoe Flint, for many years the face of women’s in­ter­na­tional cricket.

An­other wel­come item concerns the ef­forts of Rochdale Coun­cil who plan to fine peo­ple £ 100 for swear­ing or for anti- so­cial be­hav­iour in pub­lic. Amaz­ingly, the or­gan­i­sa­tion Lib­erty ob­jected be­cause it would “curb the rights and free­doms of lo­cal res­i­dents.” In re­sponse, Richard Far­nell, the leader of Rochdale Coun­cil said: “With all the hor­rific hu­man rights abuses around the world right now, I would have thought Lib­erty had big­ger things to worry about.”
