Rectory Homes starts legal action against Thame Pensioner

Today, Tuesday 11th August 2014, a pensioner and lifelong Thame resident, Mr Ron Clanfield, received a letter from developers Rectory Homes Ltd notifying him that they have started legal proceedings against him for libel.

Mr Clanfield's crime? Speaking out against the development of The Elms in Thame by submitting an objection to the works on Elms Park to SODC.

This is the second time Rectory Homes have threatened legal action against Mr Clanfield after he dared to write a letter that was published in the Thame Gazette back in January this year.

The images below show the letter that Ron has submitted to SODC as his opposition to the application for works on Elms Park, firstly the letter that Simon Vickers, Chairman of Rectory Homes sent to Ron (but couldn't even be bothered to sign himself...).
