The Beehive buzz...
Published at 15:51, Wednesday, 08 December 2010
SIR – I never sat on Santa’s knee in the Beehive, though I know many who did.SIR – The Editors’ Code of Practice – the voluntary set of standards overseen by the Press Complaints Commission – is undergoing its annual review. Your readers have an opportunity to contribute to this process with their own suggestions on how the code might be changed to improve the system of self-regulation of the British press.
Ex-pat Bill Saunders, now living in Barrow, tells me that someone in town (Loop Road, Hensingham Road area?) had a collection of Beehive Toy Fair photographs. I have never seen any of them. Have you?
I remember buying stuff out of the Beehive basement from an assistant standing on one leg, because of the high spring tide.
You’d have to go a long way these days to buy a set of dominoes and get your feet washed for free at the same time, wouldn’t you? Now that’s what I call service.
Suggestions should be sent no later than January 21, 2011, to Ian Beales, Editors’ Code Committee Secretary, PO Box 235, Stonehouse, Glos GL10 3UF. Or by email to email@example.com
