Where’s councillor Melvin Seymour (Bexley’s favoured decorator) when you need him?
When’s the best time to paint the goal posts at a sports ground? In the summer when
they are down and in storage? I would have thought so, you may have thought so,
but Bexley council had other ideas. They waited until the playing season was
well under way before sending their contractor to the St. Mary’s Recreation
Ground, off Bourne Road, Bexley. The rugby posts were a particular problem, most
people know that they are beyond the reach of a simple step ladder. The painter
tried getting on the roof of his van, then he tied his brush to a broom handle
while perching on the roof of his van. Good job the Health & Safety brigade
didn't see him.
The result of his efforts may be seen here. If your screen is not
reasonably well calibrated ‘the join’ may not be very visible. The horrible grey
skies of recent days did not help.
