Congratulations to Paul Nettleingham of the Sleep Centre who placed the highest bid, £75 (for the NSPCC) to have his partner, Lynn, act as my co-pilot on tomorrow's charity banner flight over Thanet.
Hopefully, this will take place just after midday (fog and weather permitting) and Big News Margate Blogger, Tony Flaig, will also be coming along to help as ground crew to lay out the banner for the pickup. Perhaps I can persuade him to video the exercise?
Should you be at Westwood Cross or any of the Thanet towns, please wave and perhaps think of sending in your own contribution to the NSPCC. I even had a cheque from the "Irritating Bloke", who while temporarily banned from Thanet Life, obviously has his heart in the right place. I suppose I had better "un-ban" him but please. No more long stories about the police and the IRA or I'll have to switch you off again!
If you want to send in a donation to add to the modestly growing balance, you can always send a cheque to me, made out to "The NSPCC registered Charity", to the address on the Airads website.
This afternoon I foolishly venture-out to Westwood Cross. On a motorcycle at least I managed to get there and back but for anyone trying the same in a car it must have been awful. Absolute gridlock along the Margate Road.
Mind you, while we all complain about having it, lots of us seem to like it and just imagine the journey to Canterbury! - Now if we can only sort the roads out with a little help from KCC!
