Neighbours at war

Considerable anxiety, I hear, about parking outside the church on Easter Sunday. (There are those who drive their 4x4s just a few hundred yards rather than walk.)  I know in the past that Mr Kibble at no. 41 has very kindly allowed members of the congregation to park on his drive. But owing to a falling-out with neighbours over his thwarted plans for a kitchen extension, he is feeling less kindly towards the village as a whole and says his front gate will be padlocked over the holiday period. Such a shame when people living side by side end up daggers drawn. Personally, I have never had a problem with my neighbours. Giles (the barrister) says he has never met anyone like me. Which suggests, perhaps, that an easygoing nature  is not nearly as common as we think.
