Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

If you have to park in Canterbury I'd strongly advise you to park in the Castle Street Car Park.  It's a bit of a walk from the Centre but not that much.  Why do I suggest this?  The parking spaces are very generous - the venue is very well lit - the price is half that of the Multi Storey - and in all the years I've parked there, my car has been safe.  I understand it is a Council Car Park.

The Multi Storey - where my car was keyed a few weeks ago - is owned by Euro Parks.  I did write to them and, as to be expected, just got a curt reply telling me they take no responsibility for the cars in their care.  Naturally they have a disclaimer BUT surely they do have a duty of reasonable care to the cars parked in their Car Park. I don't think they have CCTV - if they do it is not very effective.  They only have to maintain the Park and pay for a few folk who tell you on which floor to park and another couple who man the 'office' I can't understand why this highly profit making Car Park has been handed over to a Money Making Concern - they must be making money hand over fist and it would be nice to think the big fat profits were being raked in by the Council to be used on other facilities in the City.
