Fairy Social Worker said they'd be lucky to get a reply before Christmas ,she added that concessionary bus passes had been abolished so there was no help to be had there. However, she could use some old fashioned magic to turn a pumpkin into a coach but warned Cinderella that she would have to return home before midnight as the driver would be working to rule in support of the public workers' pay freeze dispute......
