Familie se Kersliggies vertoning verbied oor 'glibberige gras'

Familie wat hul huis vir verby in Kersliggies bedek het 20 jaar het feestelike vertoning deur die raad verbied oor 'glibberige gras’ gesondheids- en veiligheidsvrese

  • Roger Clifford en sy gesin het groot Kersvertoning vir 20 jare
  • Die huiseienaar van Feock, Cornwall het verlede jaar 'n blaaskans van tradisie geneem
  • Maar nuwe plaaslike behuisingsbeampte het hulle gewaarsku om nie weer die ligte aan te sit nie
  • Mnr Clifford het gesê die beampte het 'belaglik' aangehaal’ veiligheidsreëls soos 'glibberige gras’
  • ’n Familie is verbied om op te sit Kersfees lights on their own home after a housing officer warned them over health and safety fears about ‘slippery grass’.

    Vir meer as 20 jare, Roger Clifford has put on a glowing display in the village of Feock, Cornwall that has brought festive cheer to visitors from across the country who have come to visit.

    His family’s stunning festive display in their garden and house front has included a version of the famous Coca Cola lorry, a life-size Santa’s sleigh and reindeers.

    The cul-de-sac attraction, which has been a staple since 1996, has been seen by tourists from as far away as Dubai who have paid the home a visit.

    Roger, 73, his wife Elizabeth, 71, and their son Ryan, 28, took a year off last year because of the pandemic.

    'n Gesin het Cornwall Housing se 'belaglike' poging om hulle te verbied om hul jaarlikse Kersvertoning in die dorpie Feock op te stel, gekritiseer.

    Maar toe dit tyd geword het om te versier voor hierdie Kersfees, hulle het beweer 'n nuwe behuisingsbeampte het hulle verbied om ligte op te sit.

    Cornwall Behuising, wat 'n maatskappy is wat deur Cornwall Council gestig is en die omliggende grond besit, besoek het en vir hulle gesê hulle kan dit nie meer doen nie.

    Roger is woedend gelaat deur die verbod, sê die werker het 'n 'belaglike' aangehaal’ gesondheid en veiligheid reël rondom 'glibberige gras’ maar was nog om hom 'n 'goed genoeg te gee’ rede.

    'Ons het voorheen geen probleme van iemand anders gehad nie, maar 'n nuwe behuisingsbeampte het ingekom en vir ons nee gesê,’ hy het vertel CornwallLive. 'Die ou behuisingsbeamptes het vroeër uitgekom en na hulle gekyk, nie om hulle te bevraagteken nie, maar om die vertoning te sien.’

    Roger is woedend gelaat deur die verbod, saying the worker had cited a 'ridiculous' health and safety rule around 'slippery grass' but was yet to give him a 'good enough' reason

    ‘It’s a tradition for us and I don’t like breaking tradition.

    ‘My son who is 28 has been doing it since he was little and it’s been his project every year and adds to it. We are just wound-up really and gobsmacked.

    MailOnline has approached Cornwall Housing for a comment.

    Plaaslike inwoners, intussen, were left fuming at the housing officer for refusing to get in the Christmas spirit.
