Story Time

There’s a story that’s being doing the rounds for years now that we’d like to share with you all today. It’s one that the late Neville King, who was our Chairman, was a fan of. He often used words like ‘Twas’ or came up with funny limericks that made us think he was our family’s version of Shakespeare! We’re not sure who to credit this tale with but it certainly makes you think, especially about whose responsibility it is to clean what!

‘This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could do it but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, as it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.’
