Community life is now anti-social.
Villagers have been barred from putting up posters inviting people to charity events because it is "anti-social".
Volunteers in the hamlet of Misterton, Somerset, regularly use the village hall for coffee mornings and jumble sales to raise money for good causes.
Because of the building\’s isolated location they often put notices up around the village to drum up interest for the functions.
However, they were threatened with prosecution after local council officials discovered notices pinned up on a lamp post advertising a children\’s charity bingo.
The town hall claimed that the organisers were flyposting, which was against the law and punishable by a £75 fine.
The council told Paul Bradly, the treasurer of the village hall committee who wrote to complain, that it had a duty to "enforce legislation in regards to anti-social behaviour".
