A blooming big mistake by council?

HAVING a copy of Midhurst Matters arrive, I was drawn to the entry form for Midhurst in Bloom.

Collecting and completing the entry, I was shocked to receive the following from Midhurst Town Council: “I regret to inform you that as the competition is sponsored by Midhurst Town Council it is only open to the residents of Midhurst Parish.

“Unfortunately your garden in Fox Road, Easebourne, is not eligible.”

So to all my fellow residents in the Independent State of Easebourne, take note, you are free from any incumbent taxes, charges or levies that have ‘Midhurst’ in the invoice!

For my part I intend NEVER to include Midhurst in my address, to boycott the Midhurst shops, and finally request Midhurst Town Council not to litter my doorstep with their Midhurst Matters publication EVER again.
