Near my BiL and SiL (also close to me but closer to them) is a piece of land which is owned by the church (the trust which run it is called Churchlands) and Churchlands Trust is supposed to be for the good of the people of the parish. This land was allotments 30+ years ago but that was stopped due to lack of direct water. In the intervening years trees and bushes grew, the wildlife moved in. Year before last sudden appearance of a gardening team who promptly set about cutting down all the trees and bushes, left the place looking like The Somme. This was the first anyone who lives next to it knew about anything happening. Next a planning application went in to build circa 30 houses and the site was boarded off, no access to the walks through the area. Part of the process for a planning application is a wildlife assessment, what wildlife they've all been scared off or killed? That's how they got around that. Bishop was written to by irate citizens but the bishop washed their hands, nothing to do with me it's the trust.And I would hope, if the response is less than exemplary of the charitable position they loudly espouse to all, the Press.
I was educated exclusively through Catholic schools. A denser sty of inadequates and hypocrites you'd be hard pressed to find.
