Tears For Souvenirs


Not wanting to be a pooty-parper but wanting to show it's not just me who is less than deliriously happy with the way that New Year's Eve is going, here is an excellent report written by Toni Carver in last Friday's St. Ives Times & Echo:-

Times & Echo Report

Sad to say, despite the sterling efforts of the Penwith DC clean-up crews and various volunteers as of going to press (10/01/02) .....

Lanham's window is still held together by sellotape and bogies .....

Some party-goers still seem to have forgotten to come back and remove their fancy-dress from the premises.....

Surely if the New Year's Eve revelry is to continue as 'an event' someone is going to have to put some serious thought and effort into making better provisions than the existing arrangements.

And, of course, someone is going to have to pay for it. But who? If the people of St. Ives are going to be asked to keep picking up an ever-increasing tab for the New Year's Eve party I suspect that they will rapidly decide to do without it.

So, I don't think you people out there in the real world can just blithely assume that you can turn up every New Year's Eve in St. Ives and we'll have organised a party for you. Maybe you could start making some contributions yourselves. After all, there's certainly enough of you that you should be able to come up with a few good ideas.

T minus 354 days and counting .....
