I noticed on Saturday that the Victoria Crossroads ( a now much improved junction thanks to KCC) may have to be re-named. It would appear that The Queen Victoria is now an 'exciting new business opportunity in the Inn trade'. Some might recognise how boarded up shops were given a similar description in Margate earlier this year.
A regular reader tells me that the number of 'watering holes' in Broadstairs is due to decline with a strong rumour that The Olde Crowne, The Rose and most surprisingly of all ,The Charles Dickens, are all up for sale.
The combination of 'smoking-ban' and 'recession' would appear to be taking further toll. I wonder if 'Frank' will be interested in getting back The Charles Dickens, having had to give it up before?
