Black Spot-not Treasure Island
Huttonian refrains from blogging about the Hutton and Paxton Community Council but occasionally intense public interest dictates the occasional policy modification. Last nights proceedings revealed that to one Borders Councillor (hint: big,farmer, James, Tory, conundrum-sorry that's the only clues I can give) Fishwick is apparently a Black Spot. Traffic that is. So a warm welcome for the new bypass being jointly financed by Farmers C and N in the public interest. Some one commented' sotte voce, more voce than sotte-that the only black spots in Fishwick were cowpats left by Farmer C's prize beef cattle. A lady present commented that it was not correct to make fun of Fishwick's travel levels-only that morning a heavy vehicle had gone past her front door. So there.
The post (in an electronic sense) is late to day as we had an 'interruption' to the power for exactly 4 hours. This was to carry out work connected with the supply to the church. So much of the village was turned off. I don't know who was asked at this end if this might cause little local difficulties on a Thursday. Like forcing the Post Office to close on one of the two mornings it officially opens.The power actually was restored within office hours so Scottish Power might feel it has nothing to reproach itself about. True.The juice came on again at 1229. The PO closes at 12-30.
Could not the work have been done on Friday I hear you cry?
Never thought of that. Any inconvenience much regretted.
