Having missed this morning's earthquake excitement, on account that I was on the way to Swindon to fly a banner to celebrate the opening of a new B&Q (pictured) there, I caught up with the local KMFM news driving back into Thanet from the airfield.
While I was listening to the radio, I happened to catch an advert for another B&Q opening in Folkestone. That's interesting I thought, as I just happen to have a banner in the back of the car that B&Q Swindon have paid for, so why not call the Folkestone store and ask?
The result was a rather bizarre conversation, which went something like this:
"Would you be interested in flying the "B&Q Now Open" message over Folkestone tomorrow that I've just been flying over Swindon today?"
"We've had an earthquake you know, you won't be allowed!"
"Well perhaps not today but I doubt you'll have another earthquake on Sunday and some people are bound to need building materials in a hurry, so given that another store has already paid for the banner, why not use it for the cost of a local flight only?"
"We've had an earthquake but I'll ask."
The answer, came back as polite "no thank you", no reason given but I'm still not quite sure what an earthquake has to do with the airspace over B&Q in Folkestone on Sunday. Does anyone know?
