Our Town Ain't as Nice as it Used to Be

I have previously (somewhere to be found) floated the idea of a Facebook page for all the people that complain their towns aren't as nice as they used to be.

On this site, everyone could come together to agree that the market is useless, the parking is expensive, the Harrods has become a charity shop and what are they council doing about illegal fly tipping?

And the good news is, the council will never do anything about it. Because this town, although in a sense it is everywhere, doesn't really exist.

Beaker Folk everywhere, I present to you "Our Town Ain't as Nice as it Used to Be". I hope you enjoy it.

Want a good laugh? Want to laugh at the church? Want to be secretly suspicious that the author has been sitting in your church committee meetings taking notes? Then Writes of the Church: Gripes and grumbles of people in the pews is probably the book for you.

From Amazon, Sarum Bookshop, The Bible Readers Fellowship and other good Christian bookshops. An excellent book for your churchgoing friends, relatives or vicar. By the creator of the Beaker Folk.


  1. Are we entering the phase of the Beaker Folk ain't as nice as it used to be?

    I haven't noticed any recent evidence of Violence from the Arch Druid, in fact, in her dotage, she seems to be positively tamed. Are wee seeing the early onset of some dreadful malady, which makes her pronouncements almost tame?

  2. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be (trad.)
