Litter enforcement officers on the streets of Leeds.

Howard Croft column: How innocent people are made criminals

You may remember reading a few years ago about a young unemployed man as he was leaving his post office having cashed his benefits Giro accidentally dropping a £10 note. He was spotted by a council litter warden who promptly issued an on-the-spot fine for littering. This was such a mean-spirited response, and at the time unusual, that it made headlines in the national newspapers. If I remember correctly, which I seldom do these days, the council stood firmly behind the litter warden, a council employee, until it eventually dawned on its senior staff that the reputational damage was too great to justify standing on a dubious point of principle.

Nostalgia: Help for destitute children

Most of Scarborough’s post-Reformation almshouses places were offered to the elderly, the infirm and destitute widows; only the parish workhouse took in children under the age of seven and afterwards “put them out” to apprenticeships. Charity provision for children was made for their moral welfare and their future employment. “No charity in Scarbrough (sic) has been so liberally suported as this, and the donations amount to a considerable sum”, such were the published words of Joseph Brogden Baker in his history of the town in 1882 when referring to its Amicable Society.
