Complainant Name:
Vikki Little

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cheddar Valley Gazette

Complaint:

Vikki Little of Feisty Consultancy complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article about the relocation of an amateur football club which contained a number of errors relating to her company.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a print and online correction and apology in the following terms:

Further to our reports about Cheddar AFC and their possible move from Bowden's Park with the help of development partners headlined "Tesco and club opt out of the showdown" (November 17) and "Let's plan for a better village" (November 24), we would like to clarify that Sports Solutions and Feisty Consultancy are not business partners, and Anna Kocerhan works for Sports Solutions not Feisty. We apologise for this error. We also referred to the companies' "highly paid consultants" but have been asked to make clear that they are working on a results-driven unpaid basis until a development partner is secured.
