Councillor Up the Pole


Cllr David Round drew the short straw the other day when he was chosen to get up the High Street flagpole and fix the pulley.

It’s been broken recently and with St George’s Day, the Charter Fair and the Royal Wedding not far away, it needs to work.

David, an experienced yachtsman, was voted ‘most likely to get the knots right’ by fellow Councillors and dutifully climbed aboard the cherry-picker supplied by Light Angels Ltd, the firm who install the Christmas lights.

The job was soon completed and David, visibly shaken by his ordeal – “it didn’t half bounce a lot” – was last seen heading east north-east in the direction of the White Horse.
