Local School Bans Conkers After Child In Approved Safety Suit Suffers ‘Chafing’

Parents warned of dangers of ‘chafing’ in Conker Protection Suits

An inquiry is underway at a school in the Golden Triangle after an innocent game of conkers suddenly took a sinister turn.

It has emerged that a year 6 pupil at Avenues Road school had to be sent home with second degree chafing as a result of wearing a school issue CSS (Conker Safety Suit)

Nobody at the school was available for comment, but a notice on the school’s web site states:

At this stage we have taken the sensible precaution of banning conkers while we try to better understand the devastating interrelationship between Kevlar and Talcum Powder.
