Prats of The Week - Hellesdon Parish Council
Therefore, without further ado, I am happy to announce that this week it goes to Nanny's chums from Hellesdon Parish Council.
Just ask Samantha Dade, a professional child minder who needed to accompany her five year old diabetic daughter (Tilly-Rose) to a Christmas party held in in the Hellesdon community centre the other week.
Sadly for Mrs Dade and her daughter, she was told that she would not be allowed to accompany Tilly-Rose (even though Tilly-Rose doesn't have "hypo awareness" and cannot sense when she is in danger) which in effect would mean that Tilly-Rose could not go.
Why was Mrs Dade banned?
Hellesdon Parish Council's policy sates that only adults who are CRB checked would be allowed to come to the party. One wonders what an adult with evil intentions could do in a public place surrounded by other adults, but Nanny's rules are somewhat inflexible.
Anyhoo, the rather "odd" thing is that Mrs Dade does in fact have CRB accreditation, done by Norfolk County Council.
So all's well that ends well?
No, for you see Hellesdon Parish Council insisted that the check has to be carried out by them as well, and that Norfolk County Council's CRB check is not transferable.
Suffice to say a stink was raised over this nonsense.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, Hellesdon Parish Council in the face of being made to look like knobheads in public changed its mind and reversed its decision.
The Lowestoft Journal reports that at a meeting last week, Hellesdon Parish Council decided to revoke their decision on barring Mrs Dade from taking her daughter to their party on Saturday – but only after banning the Norwich Evening News and Eastern Daily Press from the meeting.
Hellesdon Parish Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
