I want to know if you think an injunction would be possible to solve this and if you think it would be likely to succeed. If not how else do you think I could go forward.
In the letter he indicated that I am an unwelcome person in the village, from what has been relayed to me he has told numerous lies abut me, he has shouted at me from a car, he has indicated that I do not deserve respect but I am unsure why, and when I do chance to meet him I am frightened of what he might say. This fear is horrible to live with; I am not normally someone who reacts like this but this on going fear is taking its toll. I just do not know what he will do next.
For your information I am a trained neighbourhood mediator and that would have been my means of choice to address this but with him completely refusing I am at a loss to know what to do next.
It is for exactly this reason that| I have approached you. I really needed to try to stop this, and the accompanying fear of meeting him. If you have any other suggestions I would be most grateful I had thought if sending a personal letter asking him to desist but I think that he nay decide if I did that to go ahead with more to provoke me.
The lettre I felt was both defamatory and slanderous but the local authority did not have in its power to address this.
How do I rate your answer please?
The letter mentions me at the beginning as giving the impression that I was involved in the talk
Iyt later went on to say
In future it is requested that anybody proposing to advertise anything relating to Winstone first contacts the organiser....... to prevent future issues as well as it being generally well mannered and courteous to do this.
' please also bear in mind when you raced your newsletter that the articles may not be correct and may have ben added by unwelcome persons. It is a pity that your editor does not feel that there was any issue with the article by Anne and felt that he did not need to print the letter clarifiying the issue that I sent to him despite the fact hat it was bought to my attention by an irritated member of your village who felt that they were unable to attend even though they had asked permission from the organisers due to who had posted the invite and implied through the advertisement that they had been involved.,
I actually throughout this had the full support of the organisers whose mail I forwarded and were horrified at what had transpired
I should perhaps have added that it only appeared in one newsletter and that this actually came out after the event!
