Prats of The Week - Water Ban II

Prats of The WeekWell, well, well, look what I got in my mailbox this morning from Bury Council!

Looks like the adverse publicity forced a change of heart.

"Dear Mr Frost

Thank you for your email regarding this issue. I can confirm that we have had problems at some events with people trying to bring in alcohol in bottles and this is in breach of our licence. However, this instance appears to have been an over reaction on our part for which we apologise, and we will review our policy on providing free water with a more customer friendly emphasis.

I hope this statement clarifies the position

Kind Regards

Communications Team
Bury Council

    Proof that victories against all this petty minded rubbish are sometimes possible. Interesting to note the email comes from one of the council's communications' 'team'. I do wonder how many people are in this team. 10? 20 maybe? Either way, with this being a local council it's probably more than are needed!

    Well done Ken! I wonder if they read some of the comments made on that blog? :)

  3. Petty minded officials are happy to bring their own versions of a dictatorship when they think no one is watching however, if you expose them to the sunlight so they can't hide, then they often back down.....Well until next time....Well done Ken!! Have a large G & T to celebrate.

    Yes, methinks the apparent change of heart by Bury council has more to do with the adverse publicity they have brought on themselves than for ideological reasons.
