Wanted - a New years resolution for Swanage
This is the time of year when we all dutifully read those joke books we had for Christmas. There used to be a series "101 uses for a dead ..." and I often wondered whether I should offer to compile the volume for dead "family resorts".
Here is a suggestion for anyone who is good at thinking of New Years resolutions. Can you think of a better way of describing Swanage than "family resort". I cringe whenever I hear it.
Now that we have a government which thinks all our kids should get an education and not go on holiday in term time its only possible for the place to be a "family resort" for 6 weeks of the year plus half term. The income from this isn't enough to keep a cat alive.
Zero points for the slogan "let Swanage be your last resort" and please no references to "god's waiting room" as he has several of them.
