First topic message reminder :

Today I took the long suffering Ms Plum to blackpool, a cracking day with nice temps and a stiff breeze coming in from the sea, Loads of folks about enjoying the day, social distancing was non existent as the business owners know its time to grab as much cash from the punters as they can before the almost certain Autumn lock down or, restrictions are implied, Many hotels offering bargain price christmas weekends if booked and paid now, ( you can see what will happen there ), we walked all afternoon and according to my iphone, I did 1900 steps,
favorite moment was at the north pier having a cup of tea and a scone listing the resident organ player doing his thing and joining in with

To be fair, they have spent zillions on the Norbreck, Its the back streets and run down hotels and guest houses that, need sorting proper, most have had ' build on ' extensions by cowboy contractors and you can see the join lines, the outside pipework is attroshous , There is a life times work just to get it up to sub standard, Everyone is after making money and not putting anything back, Crying or Very sad

Norbreck Castle hotel is in Cleveleys.

Tom, the problem lies with sub-contracting and the main contractor not having proper site managers.
You get ex-painter and decorators overseeing electricians / plumbers and groundworkers, without knowing what's proper and what's not!
