Hanging up my gloves

I have decided that it is time that I stop or resign from all the community issues I was asked by the community to fight on their behalf. Of the comments and all the emails I have written and all my comments to the local newspapers – a total of 333 letters were published.

I just wanted to make a difference and uplift those who could not pick up their constitutional sword to fight for their rights, and those who were downtrodden. And I have succeeded – oh boy, did I succeed as many, many can testify – but now it is time for others to become knights of the community.

I want to thank every official of the many government departments for bearing with me and to the many reporters and newspapers who lifted up my arms in the community issues I brought to your attention.

I have deleted the many, so many, emails of past and present correspondence as I close this chapter.

I will be now concentrating on my family, my seven grandchildren and my hobby of fishing. So, to one and all, thank you.

Keith Alfred Adolph Blake, Ottery
