Plans to convert the former Little Chef on the East Lancs Road into a sex shop have been rejected .by St Helens
Cocktails Ltd applied for a licence in March to transform the former roadside restaurant on the A580 into a sex shop called Pulse and Cocktails, aimed at couples.
But the plans created issues for a local residents and feminists. 261 objections were received by the council, including 175 signatures on a petition. The main objections were bottom of the barrel stuff, with incredulous fears that it could
impact house prices, cause queues and too much traffic or spark antisocial behaviour
But many people on social media were in disbelief after the plans were rejected, ridiculing prudish attitudes and suggesting potential new jobs had been lost.
A majority of councillors on St Helens' licensing and environmental protection committee voted not to give Cocktails Ltd a licence. No meaningful reason for the ban was offered by the council so presumably the reasons were moral. Labour committee
chair Dave Banks spouted a bit official speak which said nothing:
Members turned down the application on the grounds the number of sex establishments was already equal to the number the authority considered appropriate for that locality. They also took the view it would be 'inappropriate' with regard to the
area and the use to which the premises would be put.
Liverpool Echo also noted the worthless explanation:
Licensing rules do allow the council to decide the appropriate number of sex shops for an area -- and it can be zero, suggesting a moral value judgment. But confusingly the rules also state that objections should not be based on moral
Rotherham-based Cocktails Ltd said in their application that they have never had permission turned down before, and if they object to the decision they can seek a judicial review.
On Saturday 7th May Cancer got to feel the full fury of an army of women sick of it. Women of all
ages who have lost loved ones, friends and family flooded Victoria Park in Warrington to take part in Cancer Research's Pretty Muddy 5K obstacle course. For those who don't know Pretty Muddy isn't a walk (or run) in the park. It's a muddy obstacle
course that woman of all ages and ability can traverse -- and that's exactly what the Nice 'n' Naughty Dirty Dozen have done.
The 13 strong team, clad in pink Nice 'n' Naughty t-shirts tramped through the mud, pulled themselves under nets and laughed their way down a rather dirty slide to finish things off. Luckily the weather was amazing on Saturday but their main
reason for smiling was the amazing support they received from everyone who helped to sponsor them -- the combined total of money raised by The Nice 'n' Naughty The Dirty Dozen was a whopping £2377.24.
Trish Murray Operations Manager of Nice 'n' Naughty was elated as she not only finished the race, overcame her fear of both water and mud, but managed to get 346% over her expected target by raising £519.24 herself! "It was a great day and
fun was had by all. I just want to thank everyone who took the time to donate and wish me well." She said covered in mud, "I'm just ready to get a shower and a glass of wine!"

A Rochdale councillor has had a ludicrous whinge about a Brittany Spears style schoolgirl costume in a sex shop window.
The costume is on display at the Simply Pleasure shop in Drake Street, one of Rochdale's main shopping roads. The outfit comprises of a short tartan skirt, a tie and a white blouse cut away from the midriff.
Councillor Sara Rowbotham whinged:
What I find really concerning and disappointing is the lack of consideration shown by the shopkeeper. Wouldn't it be refreshing if adults made an informed decision not to perpetuate the sexualised imagery of children.
