London, L.A. and Barnsley - Rootours: - With rumours in the air of a possible reunion and the current "will they, wont they" drama unfolding.
The Spice Girls, purveyors of female emancipation and hope to the downtrodden lasses, have been awarded a prize this afternoon at the rainy, windswept fields of Barnsley, North Yorkshire.
As part of the comeback attempt, they have been doing the rounds of early summer fetes and church bazaars to build up their wholesome public image of yesteryear.
They arrived at their latest booking earlier today in the expectation of handing out rosettes and emboldening words, only to be presented with a rosette of their very own, in recognition of their orienteering skills.
"It is a tricky place to find," said the head of the church bring and buy sale committee "them girls turning up in our field today, bang on time was amazing! I have never known such punctual and spatially aware celebrities"
Mrs Evans, who runs the cake stall, was also pleased with the sight of "those strapping young gels in our field, makes me feel all emotional. We had to mark the event so we decided to give them a prize of our very own"
The locals had a whip round and quick chat amongst them selves and decided that The Spice Girls can spend as much time in the local field as they like. It's theirs now. The parish council agreed and handed the deeds of the field over to them this very afternoon, three acres of lovely English land between them.
Now whatever happens in their careers, they can always be outstanding in their field.
