The Dangers of Poppies

As loyal readers know Nanny always manages to stay one step ahead of the health and safety game, by moving the goal posts.

Case in point being her ban on large sized poppies being attached to lampposts in Stalybriudge Greater Manchester.

Last year large scale poppies were attached to the lampposts, and residents assumed the same would happen this year. Unfortunately, Nanny has moved the goalposts.

The Sun reports that shopkeeper Peter Taylor was astonished to receive the refusal letter which read:
I regret that we are not able to support your request . . . last year was a ‘one-off’ to commemorate the centenary for the end of the First World War.

The council has stringent health and safety guidelines it has to comply with including stress and push testing of lamp columns.

This is a service we would need to procure and we do not have the budget for it.
For the record, each poppy weighs no more that a plastic picnic plate.

Parish Councillor Neil Allsopp is quoted:
It’s a ludicrous decision. This is when we recognise the sacrifice that men and women made for this country.

I can’t believe the mentality and the lack of feeling of the people behind it. May they hang their heads in shame.”

  1. Mr Allsopp seems to have got it right, but then all Councils appear to be from the Infants classes. Ours certainly is!
