Of course, these pages would be nothing without the many wonderful people who work in local journalism, and - of course - the people who are so upset that the only thing that makes them feel better is to be photographed pointing at a pile of dog mess.

(I might have promised -quite rashly - that I would endeavour to appear in a local newspaper, pointing angrily at something, should I win this award. Can we have a word, Fleet News & Mail?)
