THURSDAY 21st March
My first job was over Kirkby Fell. Fog lights were needed as it was like the proverbial pea soup. AS soon and I decended into Beckside it was nicely clear again but some drivers were travelling too fast for the conditions on the fell. Had a good day however. Helen was all excited about getting/jetting away to Gran Canaria. I picked her and David up and saw them off at the Station. I hope the sun will shine for them. I had to laugh when I saw the report of the lucky winner of teh Euromillions picking up his cheque for £71 Million. "Will it change your life?" asked the reported "I'll give it a bloody good try!" was his response! I chaired an AGM at 7 which was very successful and later I joined friends, firstly in The Rose then on to the Capitola. The Capitola was bouncing! Good music by the Rocking Dangleberries and teh plac was packed. Very good to see.

WEDNESDAY 20th March.
Equinox Day! First day of Spring! Hooray! It's lovely to see all the spring flowers in blossom and tehre are some lovely Magnolia trees in Ulverston which are getting ready to burst. I love Magnolias. So exotic.
Dreadful news that Virginia House has ceased trading with immediate effect. I send my sincere sympathies to Craig and Louise. Times are hard in business, especially the last couple of years.
I drove past Croftlands School yesteday and it has just about disappeared. Lots of memories of that school of course, as all my family attended. I am sure there will be lots of memeories there fro lots of Ulverston folk.

TUESDAY 19th March.
I had a good day on Monday. Things seemed to go along with only minor irritations, which I was able to resolve easilly. I had a very nice tea at Clare's adn then attended Ulcverston Council meeting in teh Coro Supper Room. I find it very difficult to hear at teh best of times but at that meeting it was almost impossible. There were two items on the Agenda in particular which I wanted to find out about. One being McDonalds and the other, Ford Park.
The McDonalds Planning Application was DEFERRED until Highways England had given their view.
Ford Park have asked about using their fields for Camping, Caravans and Campervans. This provoked a lengthy debate, much of which I could not hear clearly, but many opinions and observations were expressed, and eventually resulted in a vote of 8 for and 8 against. The deciding vote was therefore in the hands of teh Mayor, Councillor David Webster. After much deliberation he eventually came down on the side of Refusal.
What is your view?
