Nanny Bans Cards
Those of you who enjoy a quiet game of cards with your friends may soon find Nanny breathing down your neck, in the same way as 14 pensioners who live in sheltered accommodation at Neville Court (Heacham, Norfolk).
It seems that Freebridge Community Housing, the housing association that runs Neville Court, have decreed that cards present a health and safety risk, and as such the game has been banned.
The housing association does not have £2M public liability insurance to cover players who were not residents.
Unless they were prepared to pay an annual premium of £250, on top of the £1.50 they each pay for room hire every week, they were told they would have to stop.
The players used five tables in a small corner of the communal room at a housing scheme of 20 flats at Neville Court, in the village of Heacham, Norfolk. There has not been an accident since the residents and their guests started their game.
However, the group was sent a letter by the housing association saying that the insurance was necessary.
Our old friends in the insurance world trying it on, without anyone ever standing up to them and making them justify their charges.
