Wallgate is starting to look nice again and now they are working on the old Pooles cafe and the Victoria pub

It's a great building. We don't take the time to look up often enough do we?

You're right, Kath. We look up at the architecture in towns we visit, but not our own. We have some beautiful buildings.

jinksi, no it is further up near the GPO. Apparently, there was a strong smell in Wallgate but everyone thought it was coming from the Brewery at the side of the GPO

KenR...To refer to Freemasons as Being members of the KLU Klux Klan ..is a Racist remark as far as i am concerned ..You are ignorant as to what a lot of good this society does in the form of charity to hundreds of needy people etc...And should not be compared to those dreadful killers!(No i an not s freemason)

Joseph... Where did your remarks come from, I have not mentioned Masons or KKK. take another look at my comments of 00.16.

Comment by: Garry on 2nd June 2015 at 20:17

I think that Joseph bloke should apologize to Ken R, he's bang out of order.

Comment by: Joseph on 2nd June 2015 at 22:39

Sorry Ken I misread the message..and apologise...

Comment by: Ken R on 4th June 2015 at 00:47

Joseph, apology accepted. I am not ignorant of the good things that are done.

The reference to Ku Klux Klan is definitely not a racist remark, if anything it is taking a swipe at that obnoxious organisation.
