Public land, under trust, "sold" to others

Was a very popular pastime in South Wales back in the day

Local public (for our left pondian cousin, read "private" as opposed to "state" school gets permission to use part of a piece of common land as a sports field

Small donation to local council chairman's Bentley Continental fund and everything's cushti
