Pleasurama happenings...?

Went for a walk along the front and peered over the top of the cliff. The cliff face onto the Pleasurama site has been covered in scaffold so they obviously won't be burrowing as I suggested in a previous posting? But, as noticed by our friend ECR with photo provided; the multicoloured graffiti has spread to the car park area and looks very technical in red and white with crosses, circles and measurements instructing someone where to go and what to do! I notice the road is closed and presume these are works required to allow access to and from the site? Being forever the optomist; this preparatory work will all be completed in time for the summer and for people to walk or motor along the front in both directions? Work will continue in safety behind the hoardings during the coming season to present something spectacular for us and our visitors. Now that's sensible forward planning for you. I await comment from our friends in the know. In the meantime I'll continue to observe and dream of the joys to come; with many others, the goings on from the safety of the cliff top...

Ready for the summer! What are you thinking about to say something so daft?

Me being optomistic thinking or is it wooly thinking?

I think it'll take longer than that. And I think I'm right in saying that the car park that's now blocked off will be no more from here on in. As you probably noticed from the big yellow circle the graffiti artists painted there before they were arrested last week, the roundabout is being moved further east, and everything west of its new location will become part of the Pleasurama development, aka Titanic. Michael Child's much better informed about it than me, though, and I'm sure he'd be happy to fill you in on his blog, or in person in his bookshop.

But as you say in your next post - yes, it's All Go Ramsgate!

Just been on Michael's site and read about the intentions. Heavy stuff, 9 pages of planning designs... Bit wiser now though so lets see some action!
