That Ain’t The Way To Behave

July 27th, 2008 · 10 Comments · Life

Sometimes you just want to stick two fingers up to the world and everybody in it, and what better way to do it than this? Don’t you just feel that here is a 4×4 driven by somebody whose only regret in life is that his car isn’t big enough to block three disabled spaces at […]

Sting reveals stolen and misused parking badges

March 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment · Life

Yes. I was a little excited by that headline too but the story in the Argus turned out to have nothing to do with the singer from The Police and everything to do with the Sussex Police and Brighton & Hove council instead.

Partial solution

January 24th, 2007 · Comments Off on Partial solution · Life

This a follow-up to last week’s piece about parking. On one of my little lunchtime walks I took a short cut through a council estate off Bayliss Rd in Lambeth. I had been past dozens of times, but had never actually been in it. As you can imagine, parking spaces are a valuable commodity in […]

Parking

January 18th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Life

Today I came across this brilliant site. It is a blog about bad/inconsiderate parking in the garage at somebody’s workplace. Some fine examples of appalling parking in an attempt to name & shame. Can we have the same thing for County Mall please? Or any of the car parks in Crawley. With particular emphasis on […]

According to the Crawley Observer there was a proposal by Crawley Town FC to use part of their car park as a lorry park, apart from on match days. A number of Broadfield residents objected and the proposal was turned down by the borough council for planning reasons. Even if planning permission had been granted […]

Pay and display

August 19th, 2006 · 1 Comment · Life

There used to be a saying about people who would not pay for shareware (back in ancient times when the honour system was in place, before shareware had expiry times on it) it went something like “If you can afford a computer you can afford to pay for software”. True it was a saying most […]

Crawley Mela

July 30th, 2006 · Comments Off on Crawley Mela · Life, Music

This weekend was the Crawley Mela at the Hawth theatre. I think the crawley Mela is a bit unusual. Traditionally a Mela is an Asian festival, and tends to feature mostly culture from the Indian sub-continent. Our one tends to spread its net a bit wider. The organisers made a point of saying that the […]

Disabled parking bays

March 18th, 2006 · Comments Off on Disabled parking bays · Life

Today I saw a beautiful sight. I was at the Broadfield Barton shops and saw one of the council’s community wardens Range Rovers parked up there. As I came back to the shops I saw the wardens themselves checking all the cars in the disabled parking bays to see if they had proper disabled badges. […]

Crawley Mela

August 2nd, 2004 · Comments Off on Crawley Mela · Life

On Saturday Jayne and I went to visit the Crawley Mela for a couple of hours. A mela is a sort of Asian cultural festival, although the Crawley one has evolved to a general multicultural festival, albeit with an Asian emphasis. We could only manage a couple of hours because we had to open up […]
