26 November (Part 3) - Better late than never. Me and Bexley council

Broadway BroadwayI should have been in Bexleyheath Broadway on Saturday to see what sort of Christmas Show Ian Payne (Business Improvement District Manager) had put on. I expect he pleased quite a lot of children and shoppers and upset those who live above the shops opposite the mall. They have been driven to distraction this year by Mr. Payne’s enthusiasm for being Master of all Ceremonies and Minister of Noise.

I would have been there except that I had booked up for the England rugby match at Twickenham many months ago. The Samoa match is relatively inexpensive if you know someone with the right contacts, which I do.

So once again I am relying on Brian Barnett for a photo of the Broadway scrum. You can see more of his work on Photobucket. By day (yesterday) the large tree looked comparatively bare.

Broadway BroadwayLast March a friend was ‘done’ by Bexley council for taking his wheelchair bound wife shopping and parking where shown here (Photo 3). Since then, every time I’ve walked along Broadway, I have looked to see if the signage had been improved.

Yesterday my patience was rewarded. The ground markings were improved a while ago but until yesterday there was nothing for those who are inclined to keep their eyes above their own feet. Now there is. I wonder how much that little bit of confusion has earned.
