Jerwood will become a white elephant

I HAD read all the remarks about Jerwood but it wasn’t until I went to see the Old Town Carnival that I had a chance to see the place for myself.

I must say the first thought that struck me was: who had the bright idea to paint the monstrosity black, as it makes an ideal target for bird mess which is already covering the face of the building fronting on to Rock-a-Nore.

The best plan I would think, would be to paint the whole place white, as no doubt it will become a white elephant after the novelty has worn off and also it won’t show the bird mess up to such a good effect.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see the finished building and also to see how successful it turns out to be.
