I UNDERSTAND from friends in Ely that they have each recently received a letter from the Sanctuary Housing Association, inviting them to attend a series of talks about breast-feeding. As all of these ladies are well into their eighties, we wonder how this is going to be of benefit? With IVF treatment clearly out of the question, it can only be assumed that the Holy Ghost Himself will also be in attendance for a series of immaculate conceptions.

I've suggested that these dear ladies, in the interests of science and a continued source of amusement, attend this event with strategically placed cushions about their persons. And there I was, thinking that pre-natal clinics dealt with this sort of thing, backed up by bustling mid-wives. Clearly the housing schemes are diversifying - straitened times indeed!
