Uproar in the Community this morning as the invoices drop on the door mats.
I got the idea from the boy who was charged for non-attendance at his friend's party.
After all, what is a Beaker celebration if not a kind of party? And when we send out the weekly service programmes, do we not put on them "we look forward to seeing you there"?
And if someone doesn't reply, that is therefore an acceptance. And if they then don't turn up - that's a breach of contract.
I reckon either income or future attendance is gonna improve because of this. In fact, if it works, I'm going to leaflet the village with the next Community newsletter.
