Woodsmith & 'The Triffids'

Benefitz Betty's picture

"When a day that you happen to know is a Wednesday starts off sounding like a Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere."  Wyndham P1, 1951

"The Day of the Triffids is a post-apocalyptic genre piece pure and simple. Written in 1951 by British author John Wyndham the book tells the story of Bill Masen who, after waking up blindfolded in hospital and discovering everyone in the hospital has been blinded after viewing a spectacular meteor shower the night before, stumbles out of his room and into London."

Scarborough Council is set to form a task group to provide a strategic plan for Scarborough Harbour.  No doubt under the auspicious eye of the the Portfolio holder Mike Cockerill and the Overview & Scrutiny  Board Chair Steve Siddons.  Both of whom freely admit that depsite headlining the recently dissolved  Ports  Development group that they failed.  No doubt they will seem fit to oversee & head up the proposed Harbours Task Group.   With recent questions asked of the future of Scarborough Harbour it seems fitting to look at some of the past associations, fossil style.
