bamber 128 Posted October 24, 2013 Report Share Posted October 24, 2013 In years gone by the St Ann's Well was a site of pilgrimage for the sick, the halt and the lame. They came from near and far to drink the curative waters. It seems that after many, many years the well's healing powers are once again being manifested in the area. This afternoon I happened to be taking a short cut round the back of the mosque. The blue badges were much in evidence down the double yellow lines. And remarkably those who had been unable to walk into the mosque were returning to their cars as fit as fiddles. But this was not the miracle. No it was the conspicuous absence of a parking attendant to hand out fines to the many cars without a valid ticket. And, from personal experience, I know that the City Council is not averse to opportunism when it comes to dishing out parking fines. Talking to an attendant I learned, off the record, that the city operates a very "sensitive" policy in this area on Thursdays and Fridays. Perhaps I should get in touch with St Mary's and see if their congregation can't get the same discretion on Sundays. 5 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
