Between council meetings and lots of pre-Christmas flying work, I don't seem to be home much at present. Contrary to what you might have read elsewhere, the online auction for the eBay auction for a Christmas message banner - proceeds to charity - is still running; up until Christmas Eve and if nobody bids for it, then I'll write my own cheque out to the NSPCC.
Considering that the winner gets a free flight and the opportunity of advertising to the greater population of Thanet at Christmas, its a great offer and if you have a business, it should be tax deductible too!
We've been busy yesterday and today "beating-up" Bluewater and Lakeside with a big sheet banner for a client. In spite of the credit-crunch, both mega-shopping-malls appear to be heaving with Christmas shoppers, and the QEII Bridge and M25 in between, packed with traffic. Best stay at home I think.
True to the Christmas spirit, the so-called "Kent Road-safety Partnership" is busy speed-trapping drivers on the way in and out of Westgate past the King Ethelbert's school, so be aware. The usual place as described in an earlier story, just as the dual carriageway goes from 40 to 30 mph and quite probably making a healthy sum of money too.
Not quite the Christmas card that many of us would like, so drive carefully and remember, "Tis the season to be making money from motorists too."
