The Kent and Sussex Courier informs us that the search gets under way for the first ever town centre manager.
Incorrect. Tunbridge Wells had a town centre manager in the 1990s. It ended in tears.
The new chairman of Tunbridge Wells Civic Society informs us that the Civic Society is really the bulwark against the destruction of those things which make this such a wonderful place.
Back in the 1990s I called the Civic Society the Aspic Society. The society is a small private group, with no democratic mandate, seeking to impose its views. The sad thing is is that some people have been taken in by this regressive organisation.
