Back Again!

At the end of last year I thought I’d take a break from blogging, as it was becoming quite time consuming.

However, I realised recently I hadn’t updated anything on my site for a couple of months. If a site is never updated then it’s not worth having!

So I’ve decided to start blogging again and update various sections of my site.

A lot has happened locally over the past months, but the most important national current event is the EU referendum.

Vote Leave

The Grass Roots Out pitch in early May where Vote Leave can now be seen

The Brexit Campaign have been quite busy over the last month, particularly on market days. It is a pity that their stall obstructs the pavement, and that they, very misguidedly, use the Pannier Market pillars as their private poster board. Actually the Town Council have a very strict, and even-handed, policy about canvassing in the Pannier Market. It is not allowed. Posters aren’t allowed either.

The market manager has lots of jobs to do – and he shouldn’t need to spend his time regularly asking the campaigners to remove the posters.

By-the-way, it’s not permissible to attach posters to anything other than your own property unless you have the owner’s permission. This means not only buildings but also lamp-posts, road signs, fences and telephone poles!

In contrast, the Remain Campaign operate from their stand on the Enhancement (for which they pay the requisite fee).  They play according to the rules of our town.
