Miss Moppitt is fictitious but the underlying story is true with a little poetic licence. The headline caught my eye in a local paper first but then made the national press. You can imagine the faces of some of the local dignitaries can’t you when they first discovered the truth behind a course on relationship management! Enjoy!
The Curious Tale of Miss Moppitt and Relationship Management
|How dare they, how dare they, the Mayor declared.
They cheated, deceived us, our blushes weren’t spared.
‘Relationship Management’ was the name of the course
but what they delivered could not have been worse.
How could they, why would they, the Council all cried.
How shocking, they’re mocking us, the vicar said with a frown.
O Trumpington, Trumpington this is what you get
Hot news, hot news, the headlines all read.
There was spanking and thanking and cries of “More! More!”
O Trumpington, Trumpington, what scandal, what shame!
25th September 2013 – headline from the Telegraph
Notes: “How we British love a bit of naughty slap and tickle.” The village of Trumpington has long been a top destination for Cambridge’s townsfolk but now it appears some residents have been trotting along to the village hall to satisfy other appetites. The innocuously named “relationship support group”, which jostled alongside meetings for the WI, the Brownies and bridge, apparently owed more to S&M than TLC. The meetings, organised by Peer Rope Cambridge, offered classes in spanking, bondage, flogging and even electrical play with “wand devices”. Participants were advised to dress conservatively from car park to hall although, once inside, topless nudity was permitted but women’s nipples had to be covered.
