Sounds like a most welcome addition to the range of facilities that a caring society provides for the benefit of those who may not be quite as fortunate as the rest of us.

It seems a little strange to me however that the journalist didn’t clarify that the application was on behalf of a PPL enterprise and not perhaps a Government funded scheme of some sort. I have no issue whatsoever with that, it just seems odd that the journalist didn’t see fit to mention such a significant point and link it with other extant facilities already successfully up and running not too far away.

One issue that does intrigue me however is how a ‘certain prolific contributor’ to these columns will respond to this news. Well known to regular readers not only for her declared love of quaint and quintessential English village life - but also for her vitriolic comments on anything and everything that so much as smacks of a new development of any kind in the rural surround. After all it is but only four days since she published elsewhere her assertion that ‘only filth support new builds’.

I do hope that she finds the heart to demonstrate a somewhat more charitable outlook on this deserving ‘new build’ rural project.

PPL?

Cripes!

Sorry, I meant LLP.

That's the second mistake I've made this year.

Maplecroft is the property, Buttons Corner is the road and Lanham Green is the hamlet.
