Peter has been busy servicing the lawnmower. Just as soon as the ground dries out sufficiently he will be able to give the grass a mow but in the meantime it continues to grow. Out in our garden, there is plenty of colour in the flower borders, the Purple Sprouting is growing well and we had our first picking of Rhubarb on Sunday.

A second repair to the slump at the bottom of the zigzag has been completed. On Monday a digger was busy recovering more rock armour from the beach. This was loaded onto a dumper truck and deposited in the recess area next to the slump. Work resumed on Tuesday when the rocks were positioned in the slump area, (washed out during The Storm and again after the first attempt at repairing); these rocks were then capped with cement. Fingers crossed this time the repair holds. Further along the promenade those crowd barriers that have not been bent and battered and rendered unusable, have been re-erected on the promenade. This has left a gap and quite a number of the barriers that have been re-instated are bent with strips of metal missing.
