Towns line up to follow Ilfracombe and recognise courtesy

Today we’ve been presenting more certificates and window stickers to courteous businesses in Ilfracombe. We’re catching up and soon all will have been presented.

What next? In the next week or so we will have some really big news, so do look in.

In May, a presentation on the Ilfracombe courteous town initiative was given at the annual general meeting of the National Campaign for Courtesy. There is considerable excitement with several towns waiting to follow in Ilfracombe’s footsteps.

More soon . . .

More courteous businesses receiving certificates

We’ve presented more businesses with their certificates and window stickers and updated the listings page of courteous businesses in Ilfracombe.

Apologies for taking so long but there’s so much happening in the town at present. However, it’s important to present these to businesses in person. It’s worth the wait.

Watch out for big news in June!

“We’ll score when we grow old.”

These are just some of the magical quotes from a Spanish football team of 5 and 6-year olds who have never won a game and never scored a goal, but are arguably, the essence of sportsmanship. Well done to them and their coaches and parents. Sit back and enjoy this truly amazing little film.

This post is partly in response to a challenging article written by James Causey of the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinal , called Sport Without Justice.  He despairs at the disgusting incidents from youth sports.  Combine this with bounty payments paid by professional clubs for injuring players – and it all paints a bleak picture.

However the wonderful video above demonstrates the essence of great sportsmanship. Sit back and enjoy. Move over thugs, here comes sportsmanship at its purest.
