So, the City Council has warned hairdressers not to give away mulled wine and has said they face fines and imprisonment if they do - more here. Don't we ever learn? Does nobody at City Hall have an antenae for thie kind of issue?
Once again Norwich City Council is nationally ridiculed (here) and most people will wonder how on earth these things happen.
Is it not beyond the wit of man for some compromise that ensures that festive traditions such as this can carry on without the bureaucracy dragging it down? Threatening letters from the council are totally over the top. Let's sit down with businesses and see what we can do.
I hope that the scroog attitude of City Hall gives way to some festive cheer and things like this are consigned to Christmas Past.
