My sympathies to the pupils of Wychwood Primary who, for the last 15 years, have managed to find innocent fun and entertainment (imaginary cars, boats houses etc) with milk crates donated to them by the local milkman.
Alas and alack, Dairy Crest (which now owns the milk company that once provided the crates) have now banned the use of these crates and have seized those (without telling the school) that were within the grounds of the school.
Health and Safety!
Two points here:
1 The crates were in fact the previous milk company's (ie they are not the property of Dairy Crest), are Dairy Crest therefore not guilty of theft then?
2 No child has ever been hurt playing with the crates.
Dairy Crest claim that there are health and safety regulations that are applicable.
Errrm..would they care to specify exactly what law applies in this case?
I will wager no such regulation exists!
