Boxer Beat


Here, just for Babooshka, is the delayed photo of Carl Froch, our local celebrity champion boxer. He was publicising a new campaign to find champion neighbours. Those that do good works for charity, or are just brilliant neighbours.

It's good that he's publicising the scheme, but what I don't agree with is the fact that he's being paid £36,000 a year by the council to do it. If I was a local celebrity like him, I'd be only too pleased to lend my name to worthwhile events like this for nothing. Putting something back into the community. It's not like flogging some after shave on TV, or wearing some branded trainer.
