On a post-Christmas exercise visit to the sea front yesterday.

1. All the toilets closed....Winton, Westbourne and the sea-front...including the pier.

2. A massive banner on the fly-over entering the Lower Gardens...."KEEP LEFT".....with an equally massive forward arrow on the far RIGHT....

3. In The Square, the multiple bus-time display showing all the buses, all the stops, and none of the times.

Message received.

One really can't with confidence say "Happy New Year".......perhaps "Fingers crossed for 2021"?
