The Knicker Vicar of Inglewood

A strange byproduct of having a Google Alert set for Inglewood is hearing news from the other Inglewoods of the world: a locale in Tennessee, a suburb of Calgary, and there's an Inglewood apiece in Australia and New Zealand. From Kiwi Inglewood comes the story of the upcoming relocation of the Knicker Vicar, the local Anglican reverend who earned his sobriquet thusly:

"In 2006, Mr Husband hit international headlines when he helped establish a regular "knicker run" into New Plymouth after Inglewood's sole underwear supplier stopped stocking smalls."
