Progress. Much needed. The result of an unexpected trip last night to Dukes for Men in response to a call from the alarm call centre in Christchurch. The shop has been completely transformed in the space of a day.

In celebration of ordinariness – or should that be the extraordinariness of the ordinary. Did you spot the road cone? It must be road cone week.
Planned well in advance of this morning’s ‘event’ Cambridge Town Hall is host to three days of display and demonstrations by our emergency services.

Interesting if somewhat academic.
Not quite sure what I was expecting. A wit has placed some of the numerous road safety cones about the Victoria Road SH1 Queen Street roundabout on the almost as numerous up lights.
