I have checked what happened with those tables, it was an unfortunate misunderstanding, these tables were waiting to be disposed off and the person responsible for storing them did not know they should not be there. It has swiftly been rectified and our discussion about them has already been much longer than the tables lingered in the offending place.
so, is it another misunderstanding that has caused the 'temporary' big huge shed building to have very large construction like ladders chucked on the roof in a very untidy manner then? (on the roof with some sort of plastic tarpauline and other rubbish)

and is it another misunderstanding that causes the same shouty bloke to scream at the kids in the week day afternoons?

Lant Street should be re-opened and given back to 'the people'. It should not have ever been closed in the first place.

The Charles Dickens children are "the people" too.

Not yet 'tax paying' people. We'll be living in this area and needing to use lant street as a thoroughfare, for far longer than each intake of kiddies. It's very short sighted, closing our road.

Their parents pay tax. The plans for the playground were approved before my children started at CD and long after they've left it's still not implemented, which I find very sad, becasue they are losing out. Also, my oldest plans to live here his whole life (as do we) so it does affect him / us.

Bloggie, the "huge shed like building" is a much loved eco-classroom the children have helped build and design. It is currently being renovated I believe.

Hopefully we can all now stop blogging a dead horse.

you're not funny or clever with that uncalled for remark.
So, permission was granted, for a 7.30AM wake up call for people who were happily sleeping!!!!!

For the second day running, inconsiderate work blokes have been chucking metal and planks from a truck, onto other metal and wood and generally making a hell of a racket. There seems to be a big wooden construction going up. AND IT'S NOISY!

I imagine the wooden fence is to separate children from building site for the moment. It is in the school’s interest to get the playground and garden ready for spring, so the unsightly provisional structures will be gone soon.

I can see that a 7:30am start is early; 8am is probably the time most builders start. The noise from any building site is of course terrible, but mercifully also just temporary.
