On the subject of notices I am reminded of the time when after a complaint from yours truly to Verity about the illegible condition of the 'No cycling' notice in St Marys Churchyard it was replaced by a nice sparkling new one.

Many posters bemoaning the fact that the last Butcher had gone from the High Street where now would they get their delicacies of pigs trotters Kidneys liver tripe and lumps of fresh suet.....it was roumoured that a new shop would be opening that also catered for the tastes of the multiculturaled residents of Shoreham.

A boyfriend of one of our posters  entered into the World Beard and Moustache Competition held at Stuttgart annually in November....unfortunatly he did not win in any group as the Germans walked away with most of the  prizes....I wondered about the Health and Safety implications of a crowd of heavily bearded men.

Unfortunatly there were a few problems with the annual Beer Festival that was held at the Red Lion. Many were woken by the noise of drunken revelers heading home a lots of broken glasses and bottles left lying around vandalism etc. In the forum it was suggested that future 'festivals' be held nearer the town....johnjohn suggested a more suitable venue......

The subject of football cropped up when the Brighton team had a big match in the offing.I said that the local team should onlyhave local players and manager to truly be able to support a local team... it seemed to be that the teams that had the most money won the games as they could afford very expensive managers and super players from Azerbaijan !

Many voiced anoyance about the amount of junk mail leaflets and cold callers that they were getting...I reminded them of the idiom about 'walking a mile in anothers shoes' as some of them to earn a crust have to call on some very unsavoury households.

A small quality pie company started up in Shoreham and since then has gone from strength to strength ( You can actually buy them in Tesco now !)

This was posted at the height of the Parliamentary expenses scandal, claims for second homes, duck homes and some exotic expenses...many MP's seemed to be tarred with the same brush !

There was a discussion about why married men generally lived longer than single ones.....I suggested that excessive alcohol and nicotine consumption made possible by small housekeeping bills might be a factor !
