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?

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!
