'There is a lot of discussion at the moment about 'rogue traders' along the Esplanade....'

I think the traders really add to the atmosphere and isn't it traditional as in folk? The only thing I have been a bit bothered about, is young kids setting up on the front selling lemonade. Excellent idea and should be encouraged and it isn't competition for me at all, but I have to spend a lot of money on getting my trailer up to scratch for the Environmental Health inspectors, and rightly so. I have to gain a certificate so that I can prove I know how not to poison my customers. If someone does get contaminated by the lemonade sold on the front I might get the blame.

ok that's my 2p's worth.

See you in the Blackmore Gardens, I hope.
