I was pondering as I cycled along the cliff top in Clifftonville, that maybe things are not bad as they seem, I had a gander at the new play area, which all credit to those responsible, looks fantastic.
I was so positive that I was willing to ignore the TDC press release which started “Thanet's historic Viking connections will be celebrated….” and curb my usual morose reaction which would be to ask what’s to celebrate about a bunch of looting, pillaging etc Norsemen on holiday in Thanet.
That was until I received an email from Cllr Clive Hart, telling me that flower beds were in danger outside the bowling greens in Eastern Esplanade, as TDC attempt to grass them over, rest assured Cllr Hart has informed Chief Exec.
Anyhow I expect a photo opportunity for Cllr Clive Hart coming up, some time soon, either in front of endangered flowers or the Viking Playground or both, looking stoic or triumphant depending on the location and story, in at least one of the locals’, incidentally the play area will be official opened @ 11:30 on April 2nd, and no surprise not open for children until Friday 3rd of April.
Still in other news Mr Puss was spotted getting in a bit of late afternoon sunshine, as he starts his strict spring exercise regime, seen here limbering up with a few gentle stretches as he gets into shape for summer. Late news, I see that, Michael Child has been bigging up Manston on Newsroom South East tonight cheers!
