Following the recent success of various antiques and travel TV programmes, The Cheltenham Hurrah held an open afternoon at the Cheltenham Town hall yesterday. The Cheltenham Hurrah staff were keen to gather many stories from the good folk of Cheltenham telling tales of interest and woe.
Lots of tales
Within the first hour or so, many residents had told us historical tales associated with the town dating back many centuries. As a result, The Cheltenham Hurrah decided to have a regular page dedicated to facts in and around the Cheltenham area for people to share and contribute to.
However, one particular letter arrived at the busy Cheltenham Hurrah mail room today addressed from a Mr Quincy Tippington.
The Cheltenham Hurrah would like to thank Mr Tippington, from Swindon Village, for his interesting comments and charming photograph of his wife (Mrs Ethel Tippington).
Whilst The Cheltenham Hurrah does indeed agree that she would make a worthy contribution to the interesting stories of in and around Cheltenham. However, there appears to be some kind of misunderstanding on your part. The issue rests with some confusion not only about the page content but also the title of the page we (were) about to publish.
To be precise, the page is in fact called ‘The Cheltenham Fact Hunt’ and not ‘the Cheltenham Fat C*nt’ as you seem to be indicating.
The staff and editors do indeed express our thanks for your contribution, but we will not be publishing your letter or photograph at this time.
Don’t be disheartened
However, do not be disheartened as Channel Four are often looking for people with your wife’s’ talent for their ever running, talentless show, ‘Big Brother’. That programme is full of Fact Hunts.
