A Quick Quiz,

hands up if you do not know how to wear a scarf,

well it appears that many people in Northamptonshire are queuing up for lessons, their cash flush council has started a course at the Adult Learning centre on how to wear one,

the course, is due to run on November 3 at Abington Bowling Club, the authority says the event has been designed to teach participants “how to wear scarves more effectively for their personal style.” learners will also “discover different ways to tie and wear scarves” as well as “understand how scarves can make a difference to your outfit and proportions.” it also adds that pupils can learn to “practice a variety of ways to tie scarves using knots, twists, loops and folds”, I had no idea that wearing a scarf was so complicated, the council countered criticism by stating; ' this is a very popular course and one of a number of personal development classes we offer that aim to help people to build their confidence, particularly for those who are looking for work and want to dress to impress for a job interview', wear a scarf for a job interview? goes to show how times have changed, I have to admit Northamptonshire Council really know how to look after the population and cater for every need, 

only 2 years ago it offered a course titled, 'meet the welfare needs of hamsters' which was due to run at Caroline Chisholm School in Northampton, the council stated that it is “designed to give hamster owners, or anyone considering owning a hamster, an understanding of how to meet their welfare needs.” participants will be able to “plan a balanced diet for hamsters” and “evaluate the extent to which different types of hamster housing meet the needs of hamsters.” people who attend the course will also be able to “describe the social needs of different species of hamster and explain how to provide appropriate company, identify some natural behaviours of hamsters and select equipment or methods which enable hamsters to express these behaviours and recognise signs of good and ill health in hamsters.” but it appears that the people of Northamptonshire are clued up about hamster care, a spokesman for Northamptonshire County Council said no bookings had been made for this particular course so it wouldn’t be going ahead, I wonder if the council has offered the whole gambit of animal welfare courses? dogs, cats, birds, lizards, snakes, spiders, fish, rabbits, guinea pigs, elephants, no that would be just too silly! or would it?
