Had a call this morning from a resident of Vernon Road in St James. She told me that, around two months ago, a gang of workmen appeared and dug a rather large hole, then put barriers around it and disappeared.
Since then, locals have phoned KCC Highways who told them it was “something do with Southern Water” and that “EDF are involved too”.
And still the hole remains.what could it be? The start of a municipal swimming pool? A secret escape route for the Borough Councillors? Perhaps a tiny underground car park to raise more revenue?
I’ve begun some enquiries at KCC, but in the meantime if you know to whom this hole belongs, let us all know by responding to this blog posting.
