Weekend menu – 26 / 27 October 2018

Every Tuesday morning between 6.30 and 7.30 some chap wanders round town wafting one of those annoying petrol leaf blowers. The object is to blow any leaves and debris in to the street before the road sweeping wagon comes through and sucks it all up. In reality he ends up blowing muck in to all the shop doorways and on to window ledges as well as waking up any town centre residents still in bed. This week he didn’t show up so after the road sweeper had gone through we were left with pristine streets but pavements carpeted in fallen leaves. You may have seen a lot of local business folk pushing brooms on Tuesday morning.
