Keeping it local

Hardly the latest in news but worth mentioning in case you missed it. The hard working soul above is Tony who's taken over the Harbour Newsagents in Margate Parade following Geoff's departure after the sad loss of his wife.
Tony's been making improvements galore making it a more enjoyable experience to shop there, today I even managed to pick up a copy of "The Chap" to compliment my packet of Camels. It's a vital small local business which would benefit for your support, so consider using it.

I say, a copy of 'the chap' available in Margate, then the regeneration is complete, can you recommend anywhere i can get my spats polished?

Cobblers. At the top end of the High Street.

Splendid news all round, next thing you know we will be getting a cosmopolitan art gallery or something. I wonder if Gustav and Vic (from the chap) would like to come and visit?

Perhaps. although I imagine they'd be disappointed to see Parade Outfitters long gone.

indeed they would arty, as should any aspiring young gentleman. Its all very well but art gallerys are only going to get you so far in life, if a chap is unable to purchase a decent Homburg for the winter months or Panama for the summer then i am afraid a town can no longer be considered civilized.
