Little old Me, and an internationally covered event – who would have thought it

Where to start these blogs, is often the problem. I could ” star wars reference ” and use the “along time ago………….. ”  but it wasn’t that long ago.however, the experience really was this year out of this world.

So who wants a blog about another fire works display, and boring pictures.

 Well, this one is a little bit special, I cant say its free to attend, as it’s not.  But it gathers international media coverage each year as the organisers continue a tradition of burning Effagees for the crowd, always Guy Fawkes. Each year they also add a selected media person. This year it was Harvey Weinstein.

What people don’t always report is the hard work of the committee and organisers that also put together a torch-lit parade through the town before the fireworks to involve the community, the schools, the nurseries and the children & families. It was  the 3rd in 4 years that I had been here, as a helper, a performer  and  this time as a marshal  so I got to actually see the amazing procession

If you are anywhere able to get to this event for future years, Or feel like helping out. contact the organisers Its got to be one of the best Fireworks displays  that “oldmanleslie ” has  ever seen “

“The tank” a little place with a Massive approach to customer service

Right in the heart of Bognor Regis Town there used to be a McDonald’s.now this was a McDonald’s that like many other towns had their people  that would meet around the front of it and will be open all hours. it  would serve all the usual stuff however. This wasn’t enough for the huge corporate13235356_1739686559623497_4101827746472934004_othat is McDonald’s, who  decided to take the restaurant out of Bognor Regis and it’s place was  empty for a little while

 

But now the site that was formerly the restaurant has been brought up and is being developed at the moment it is the smallest coffee shop and bar in Europe and it’s called “the tank”

There is a lot of work going on at the tank to make it a venue for all sorts13450240_1749017372023749_6410048138397298701_nof things for all kinds of people but initially it’s a coffee shop that seats no more than about 4 or 5 people and it’s friendly and it’s good and it’s quality coffee and it’s nice. I personally as a resident of Bognor Regis wish the owner or the very very best luck in getting it off the ground I’ve used it a couple of times, the  coffee is  good,doughnuts are gorgeous and  it’s such a nice place to go if you are in town whilst on holiday

 

Its right in the middle of town

41-43 High Street

Bognor Regis

So nice to see a start up doping well. and  have  great feedback, but dont take my word for it
