    No doubt they’ll have their own party, that nobody knows about due to dreadful advertising, at… no not the High Street as it should, but… The Village.

    All the containers will still be there, but probably they will have already installed a Car Park Ticket machine, despite Cllr Furniss.

    I think we ought to shut Portsmouth Road, whether we have a party or not.
