"Scarborough's MP says Alpamare hadn't thought enough about the off-season before it got into financial difficulty.

We've told you recently how the operator was facing a winding up order over a £700,000 debt to British Gas.

Other creditors include site owners Benchmark Leisure, which is owed £2.8 million, another gas company and an electricity supplier.

It successfully filed for a Company Voluntary Order and restructured its debts, allowing it to continue running the water park.

But it's reduced its opening times to weekends and holidays, although it's intended that a new Wellness Spa will open through the year.

Robert Goodwill said:

"I think the summer footfall and number of customers has been along expectations and they were very pleased with that. I think what they possibly haven't factored in is how seasonal a resort that Scarborough is and that there may be some local people that use it regularly, but it isn't the sort of facility you go to if you're wanting to train for the Olympics. We've got the Sports Village for that."

If only they had a pool you could actually swim in ... next to the fence with a retractable floor in the main arena for the ice twirling.

Or indeed if Duce actually turned up at the local residents meetings.

Blimey .. how time flies ;-)

Far too exciting...

“It’s a shame that more people don’t actually see their own cities,” says Quinn, who, rather than carrying a flag, wears the orange trousers of the municipal street sweepers..."

"Locals, too, are looking for novel ways to engage with their home cities. Eugene Quinn leads “Urban adventures around his adopted city of Vienna, including the Ugly Vienna Tour, the Corruption Tour, the Midnight Tour, and even a Smells Like Vienna Spirit Tour, which explores the olfactory delights of the Austrian capital. He says they attract as many as 80% locals."


tis not funny really ..

""My first job is to try and make sure that everybody is clear that things will be done differently," he said.

"We are talking about large amounts of public money helping to support Welcome to Yorkshire. I think that the organisation needs to be more open and transparent.

"One of the things I will be putting to the board at the next meeting is that all meetings of the board take place in public and are webcast."

He said he also hopes members of the public will be able to ask questions at future meetings, while as part of the shake-up the current nine-person board is being almost entirely replaced. Coun Box said North Yorkshire County Council leader Carl Les will retain his place on the board, while he and Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones will be joining it. Applicants will now be sought for new board members, with public adverts due to go out this week.

“It has clearly been knocked off track by recent events, everybody accepts that," Coun Box said. "The question is, does Welcome to Yorkshire still have a role to play? I believe it does but things have to be achieved in a different way.""

"The comic book remains culturally significant and relevant. It's a way that people like to consume stories," Chris says.

"I think there will always be comics, and I'm sure as long as there are comics Marvel will have a stake in that world."

Marvel also took over the Hammer House series ...

Just need a Cushion...

Am pretty sure there was a Comic Shop on't North Bay.
