Robin Hood and the Police.
I wandered into Morrison's this afternoon to be greeted by a number of Police Officers promoting the recruitment of some new Special Constables. I entirely laud this endeavour, though I think Erith is probably the last place that they should be trying to recruit from. The only special thing most Erith residents are associated with is special needs whilst (briefly) at school. I don't think I would be a good Special Constable candidate, on the grounds I think it highly unlikely they would give me access to a Glock or a taser. probably a good thing I hear you think. Before the 1997 total hand gun ban, I was a keen competition pistol shooter - I used to own a lightly customised Glock 17 9mm pistol - now sadly missed.
Mum and I went to the Robin Hood & Little John for lunch yesterday - see the photos above. I have written extensively about the place in the past, so I will not bore you with how great the place is - just try it for yourself; you will not be disappointed - the best in real ale and local home cooked food. They are now also selling beer from the Essex based Brentwood brewery.
Simon has now restarted posting to his excellent Sibonetic Blog, based about the local situation in Plumstead; I for one am very glad to see him back, his absence was much noted. Do check it out.
Apologies for last weeks' slightly tatty blog posting; for some reason Blogger was playing up and the layout of the article left much to be desired. Normal service is now resumed however.
