Walking Stick Man Retires

Regular readers will be saddened to learn that a much loved local character is about to retire.

Walking stick repair man Michael Settee is set to retire at the end of the month, after 40 years tending Saltburn's walking sticks. Mr. Settee is a well known 'character' in the town, often to be seen outside the Gents' toilets in the square offering his very personal service.

Many people will know him as a stalwart of the Saltburn Hard of Thinking Club and an active member of the local Moustache League. Mr. Settee told the Subversives that he wishes to spend more time with his moustache.

"I want to grow the perfect 'Pancho Villa'," (pictured right) he told us.

We wish him the very best of luck.
