A late night phone call from a High Street neighbour to inform me that High Street is on fire from end to end, sends a feeling of dismay through us.
Luckily, for us, it turns out to be “just” the Globe building, which was being restored by the Heritage Trust. It was ablaze from end to end. Gerry will be happy, another old dunger gone. A disaster for High Street, as it leaves a nasty hole in the block and it was a fabulous frontage. We watched it crash into the street with some dismay, unfortunately this will have repercussions for the whole block. We will wait and see.
The lack of policing in our enclave has been a concern for many months, as the so-called “cordon” is leaking like a sieve. There has been no attempt to protect these buildings from anyone except us owners, who have been excluded for 2 years. No thanks to the powers that be for this deed, which was entirely predictable.
I am off this morning to see if we have any damage, the amount of water flowing down the street last night would have filled many swimming pools.
Another Dunger gone Gerry.
