Just thought I would post something on here to make parents aware that over the past few days there have been a lot of reports on social media sites about men in black/white vans with a black dog either trying to lure children into their van or driving very slowly and acting suspiciously, there have been reports of these men in Bridgwater, Wellington and Taunton and what with it being Halloween I think every parent should be aware if their children are going out this evening. My son is only 7 weeks old so obviously won't be going out but reports like this make my stomach turn!

I can imagine, though, that many of the Morrisons' staff will also feel aggrieved by the actions of the Manager-----
if you look into this more closely, I think what Morissons's said to the poppy seller was, and I paraphrase:
'You can sell poppys inside the store or outside the store. There is promotional material inside the store which may conceal you, so you may prefer to go outside'.
The poppy seller chose to go outside.
Our posts just crossed, Jimmy --- I was replying to yours as you were writing this----
From my understanding, the poppy-seller who chose to go outside was there in the morning ---
There was a change-over and the gentleman in question, who, it is reported was very cold, was told to 'wear a warmer coat tomorrow'-----
I think things happen and are then often regretted ---- Morrisons have said they will send a token gift of apology to the two people involved (the customer who expressed concern and the gent himself) and, as has to happen in life, things will then move on --- but not without people learning lessons----
