Once Again, An ‘Offer’ Means You Don’t Have To Accept…

It’s a concept that people don’t really seem to grasp that often:

The founder of an Essex-based anti-knife crime charity which has received funding to deliver workshops to pupils claims schools across Rochford and Rayleigh haven’t taken up the offer.

Maybe they’d rather concentrate on the Three Rs instead..?

Paul Evans, deputy head at the King Edmund School, said he has invited Ms Shearer for a meeting next week.

Ed Hawkings, assistant headteacher at Sweyne Park, said: “We are not aware of anything being offered but we are always interested in listening and thinking about what can be done, especially in terms of crime.”

This is why people run to the local press and whinge. It works.
