Lancashire County Council Bans Homemade Cakes From Library

by | 22nd, September 2010

HOMEMADE cakes and biscuits are banned at Chorley’s Adlington and District Millennium Committee. When they met at the Adlington Library, the concil told them that all non shop-bought cakes were vorboten.

Says Committee member Ann Shires:

“I just think it’s over the top, even my nine-year-old granddaughter is always saying ‘Oh grandma, it’s health and safety.”

Says Julie Bell, head of Lancashire County Council’s Library and Information Service:

“We do everything we can to support the important work of community groups, including providing venues for meetings.

“However, we do not have kitchen facilities where food can be prepared and – though we know home-cooked baking often tastes better than the commercially prepared kind – legal restrictions mean we can only allow packaged goods with clearly labelled ingredients.”

The cherry on the top of this story of cake and tea are the comments on the Lancashire Telegraph’s site:

Julie Bell is the sort of dead wood you could remove from the council wage bill and help towards the budget cuts.
Julie Bell is the sort of deadwood that should be removed from the gene pool, never mind the council wage bill!
