COUN­TRY Cake takes the bis­cuit

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

We thought that you would like to see the amaz­ing wed­ding cake made by my friend Abi Bris­tow for our coun­try-themed wed­ding — in­clu­sive of bride and groom pheas­ants! Cliff and I were mar­ried in Bishop’s Stort­ford.

Lissa Cook, Hert­ford­shire but also train the Guns that safety comes first.

The Ed­i­tor re­sponds: Quite right, Mr Simp­son, it is in­deed dan­ger­ous. I don’t like to draw na­tional dis­tinc­tions but I won­der if Bri­tain is bet­ter than most coun­tries in terms of gun safety. I cer­tainly know one Hun­gar­ian vis­zla han­dler who won’t take out Ital­ians any more. sea­son as mine does, there is al­ways a slight con­cern that there might be a de­lay. As my per­mit ex­pires in Novem­ber

I had marked in my di­ary — in Au­gust — a re­minder to ap­ply early. I need not have wor­ried.

Northamp­ton­shire Po­lice wrote to me in late Au­gust, sug­gest­ing that I down­load the re­newal form from its web­site, com­plete it and re­turn it, with the four re­quired pho­to­graphs, and they would con­tact me in due course. Early last month the firearms en­quiry of­fi­cer phoned to ar­range his visit and came on 14 Septem­ber. Nine days later I re­ceived my new cer­tifi­cate — six weeks be­fore the old one ex­pired. That’s what I call ef­fi­ciency.
