However, other locals are fighting to block the event on the grounds that much of the author’s work was ‘racist and offensive’. Many of Blyton’s 600 stories have been updated since her death to remove inappropriate content – with, for example, the golliwog owner of the Toytown garage in her Noddy books being replaced by a ‘Mr Sparks’.
Anthony Mealing, 63, who is trying to stop the event going ahead, said: 'My grandmother, Annie Grigg, taught at a school near here where they had rather racist Enid Blyton stories issued free by the author to all the pupils in the 1950s.
'The moral of one of the stories is: Don’t leave any money around if there are any black children about as they will steal it.
What a joke.
Libtards trying to prevent a plaque because the writer told the truth.....
Eradication of the truth is how socialist brainwashing starts in education....and history re-written.
