To the Margate Carnival yesterday. By George, you couldn't have wished for better weather!
And it wasn't just the sun that was out. Our glorious council leader Sandy Beach was mingling with the crowds, pressing the flesh. Dressed in Tory blue top and shorts, of course, accompanied by his charming blonde partner, who was also sporting party colours in the form of a pale blue, flowery summer dress.
Still, somehow the carnival wasn't quite the same this year without the traditional fire to finish it all off.
Update: For the curious among you, one of my readers appears to have captured our Sand and his lovely companion here:
For the sake of disambiguation, Sandy's the chap in blue on the right walking like a former boxer. Which is in fact what he is, apparently.
