Now spoiling the Canaries

Well it’s a few years since we had a break but good fortune favoured us and we managed a return holiday to Playa Del Ingles, our favourite destination in the Canaries.

The hotel we use is spot on, but when we went to visit the bustling shops, bars and restaurants, etc, situated just around the corner, we were gobsmacked.

We found the area had been pedestrianised with cobbles and impregnated with a minefield of stainless steel bollards. The area was decimated and we had flown 2,000 miles to see it.

Our regeneration officers must have got there just before us because it was like being back on Yorkshire Street without the sun.
