TELESCOPES: Cheaper than repairs

I’d just like to take this chance to thank Mayor Norma Redfearn for the installation of the wonderful new telescopes on Whitley Bay sea front.

However, it did make me wonder if, because so much of the coast has been closed recently – Rendezvous, Watts Slope, Dome, clock, southern prom, Brown’s Bay – this was the only way to see it from afar.

Still, I suppose installing two telescopes is much more budget-friendly than actually fixing our crumbling, yet much-loved and missed front.
