We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Custom and practice has it that council staff can park in the car park at the King Cole in Dutch Bend. The council owns the land and has leased it to the pub for 99 years and things have generally pootled along OK this way for the past three decades. This week the pub's landlords decide to stick a sign up and get the clampers in. The first that most of us know is when Polly comes in from her blind readers' club session at Dutch Bend.

"It's a good job that I managed to find some space in the car park at the library otherwise I'd have been clamped!"

Frog decides to send a message out to all staff warning them not to park at the King Cole. He mentions it to T.Aldous.

"Yes, Julia told me about it last week, we're trying to find out the legal position about it."

"Wouldn't it have been a good idea to tell people this was going on?"

"Yes, I don't know why Julia hasn't sent a memo to staff about it."
