They must have read the duck thread and had a conscience readjustment.

Not so sure how much common sense...

The bread amnesty, which began on Monday, lasts until Friday.

Quote
Reigate and Banstead Borough Council said visitors who wanted to feed bread to the birds should ensure it was fresh and one of the healthier multi-grain varieties.

I'm envisagimg notices put up with signs saying 'No bread past xx/xx/xxx sell-by date allowed beyond this point.'

Wonder if people will be loafing about, waiting for some crumby busybody to dish out "new" bread for "old", or would some crusty councillor be there with his trusty digital camera, snapping the violators who insist on feeding the ducks with bread after the "amnesty" ends ?  Roll eyes
