No Riff Raff, and don't mention the war! Basil did but he thinks he got away with it.
I booked up "The faulty Towers Dining Experience" for my birthday back in May. Unfortunatley it is no longer on, and they have not even contacted me! Our group were 8 on the Premier table. Was really looking forward to it! It's not cheep, and you don't go for the food. A set menu of Tomato soup followed by Chicken main. But I have been to a few restaurants in LG which could compare I imagine!

I have not seen any restaurants with tapes marking spaces, but tables are placed further apart and those with limited floor space are using less tables

I see that the Counsel are spending 200k on repairing a couple of the small pathways around the square by the church. Hopefully they will get the same contractors in and use the same tiles and workmanship standard that they used on the revamp 3 or 4 years ago.

It looks so good. Would not want it to look tatty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND UNFINISHED AND A WASTE OF MONEY

Sounds like another con, like the plaza refurb a while back.
Local Mayor/Councillor awards contract to friendly builder/contractor. (cheapest estimate out of 3, the other 2 will get the next jobs). So 200K, I imagine the local rate for a street paver would be no more than 25K per annum. So 150k would be enough to employ 6 fellas for a year! And allow 50k for materials, if they are matching existing - that would be an awful lot of block paving!
I think the real cost is closer to 100K, and the other 100k to be split between builder and council.

Of course I am only winding every one up, and that type of fraud would never happen in Spain.

Let's hope this time it won't take so long!!!

It's a ramp for wheelchair access. Not sure if there will be a shortcut for pedestrians.

In terms of aesthetics, it is exactly the same as the existing stretch from Crab Island to the little mirador, but that has steps.
