The Torbay Half Marathon went well yesterday, no problems getting to the bus stop in Torbay Rd and the diversion round Preston to Cockington was well sign posted. I did go wrong at one point and had to do a three point turn on Preston Down Rd but was only a couple of minutes late getting into Cockington on my first trip. After that no problems and after the run was over the council quickly removed all the road closed signs and things got back to normal very quickly. One tiny little glitch, There was a sign at the junction of Torquay Rd and Hyde Rd which read, "Road Closed Access Only. It should have been at the junction of Torbay Rd and Hyde Rd but never mind. No one took any notice of it anyway.
The sun actually came out in the afternoon which was nice. Cockington when the sun is shinning is really a pleasant place to be, quiet, away from traffic and very relaxing.
PS We had a leaflet pushed threw the door yesterday, someone has lost their pet white ferret, if you have seen it please let me know.
PPS The plan to build houses on Churston Golf Club has finally been approved after what seens like a hundred years war of words between those for and those against. Where will the good people of Torbay play golf now?
