Postscript, September 22, 2008:

Community members are asked to be aware that as of 19th August 2008, local proprietor and JP Mrs Maxine Hawking has registered the words ‘Copley History Group’ as a business name and has stated in writing, September 3rd 2008, to the founder of the group and editor of the Copley Phoenix, that any further use of those words will lead to legal action.
