Meriden turns out to be a hotbed of local activism as travellers invaded local fields on the last Bank Holiday and started developing this part of "the Meriden gap" without planning permission. In response, locals have set up official protest tents at either ends of the lane, with oil drum fires, tea tents and official points to hand in objections to the planning committee. The local bobby looks a little out of place having been sent to keep an eye on the genteel protestors, the vast majority of whom are well past retirement age!
Thick carpets of bluebells
Conversation overheard in a pub about Britain's Got Talent: 'Eric, what the name of the lady who originally sang "Je ne regrette rien"? You know, "the little sparrow".'
'No, she was Spanish and sang "Don't Cry for me Argentina".'
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Simon Cowell have a lot to answer for!
