A VICTORY FOR COMMON SENSE

Dear Ed,
 
The victory for the campaign to keep Selsted School open is a victory ultimately for common sense and the democratic process.

Above all, it has demonstrated what can be achieved when the whole community pulls together for a worthwhile cause.

I hope that those who promoted the closure of this school will now realise how many of us value our distinctive English rural way of life, quirks and all, and will go to great lengths to preserve it.

May I o­n behalf of  Swingfield Parish Council thank all those who supported the campaign.

Cllr.Colin Tearle

Chairman
