Support for mugs

First published in Your View

I WRITE in response to the letter from an unnamed correspondent published in the Advertiser on May 9 regarding Barnt Green Parish Council’s decision to purchase Queen’s Diamond Jubilee mugs for each household in the parish.

This was a unanimous decision by the parish council to mark this significant historical event. The council has already received several comments from parishioners supporting the decision.

These include: “I think this is a very generous gesture by the council,”

“I still have my commemorative mug from the Queen’s Coronation in 1953”

and “I collect commemorative mugs and this will be a splendid addition.”

I can only surmise that your correspondent is someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

John Jagger, chairman, Barnt Green Parish Council
