Canterbury ‘tea-leaf’

From Dr Roger E. Thornington

Sir, — On three occasions out of the past four weeks, the Canterbury Library copy of the Church Times has vanished from the open racks by Saturday morning. I drew this to the attention of the staff, who are now forced to retain the revered journal behind the counter and issue it “on demand”.

Whatever is going on? Is there a Church Times tea-leaf on the loose — and in Canterbury of all places?

I hope that, having read this letter, the miscreant(s) will repent of the error of his/her/their ways, and the Church Times will again return to the open rack rather than the covert position currently forced upon it.
