My thanks to a loyal reader who forwared me the text of a letter that appeared in the "Eastern Daily Press" the other day, wrt Dwile Flonking:
Chairman of North Norfolk
District Council Licensing
Just like Mr Potter ( Letters, June 2nd) I am very pleased that the Dwile Flonking Festival at Ludham was a great success. But Mr Potter describes as a "jobsworth" the person who said the event might contravene laws on drinking games.
It is worth noting that officers of the North Norfolk District Council were concerned when they were made aware of plans for an event which may have threatened to contravene new national laws introduced in April, to reduce the impact of over-consumption of alcohol, laws we strongly support as a council. A visit was made to the publican involved to offer the best advice as to how she could continue to hold the Dwile Flonking event without breaking the law.
There were no thoughts of spoiling legitimate enjoyment and entertainment, but we wish to ensure that the law was upheld - otherwise the publican would have been putting her licence at risk.
The result of our officers timely intervention was that the event was held successfully, it provided enjoyment and entertainment for many people, the publican was able to boost business and everything was undertaken within the law of the land.
I have to ask - what's wrong with that?"
"May have threatened"???
In oither words they didn't know, or care, but banned it anyway.
