Bloody local councils......

Mrs K and I had been looking forward all week to the "Famous Chatham Sunday Market" advertised in our local paper.

This was to be held at the Chatham Dockside Outlet Centre, which opened in May 2003. The former Boiler Shop, a Grade II listed building, has been converted and extended to house over 80 shops selling speciality clothing, luggage and home furnishings from High Street names. 300 jobs have been created in the centre.

Unfortunately, when we arrived there. No market.

The wonderful people at Medway Council had pulled the plug at the last minute.

In the Medway Towns recently we have had French, Italian and a "continental" market held with no problem, but the minute we try to have a local market, bureaucracy steps in.
