For anyone that didn't hear it on Essex Radio or know someone in Jaywick. Some of the Roof of the Sheldrake Pub, decamped and made a succesful landing in Meadow Way earlier today. But the biggest shock was that the story actually made it into the Gazette Online the same day, wonders will never cease.

Funny you should ask that............................!!

Luckily we didn't do too badly this time! A few smaller branches down, and one, broken, but still up the weeping willow. The other willow still has a large branch stuck up top, from the last winds, but it is still partially attatched. We were hoping last night would bring it down................no such luck!

Thanks for asking Viv!

As normal I leave late replies, but, my son lives on Brooklands Road so being open to sea "breezes" he had a very windy night, and he had his TV aerial mast snap leaving it dangling.

the next day he phoned me to say his TV works just as normal with ariel dangling...lol

my son is still in recovery mode from SEPSIS nearly losing both his left leg and his life, but was granted by those who look down more time on earth to make a mess in my shed, bless him, but cannot use a ladder to remount his ariel... it will get fixed by a buddy soon..

I live to the rear of his place 2 back from the front line and have huge fir trees in next doors garden that takes some of the wind as a wind break but it was still very windy with my rear access being covered in "leaves" or whatever you call them from fir trees..

I have quite high fences in my property dividing the front from the back, so keep my bins plus a small wheelie bin next to such fence & gate for ease to put out on the front of my property, but even though the bins were sheltered they were doing a dance in the swirling wind like a mini tornado.

Ah, wheelie bin.. its a long story, but yes I can use one, hated by the bin men, as they chuck it each week across the road, but there you go.... How long until we are all issued with a TDC sanctioned one then get fortnightly collections I wonder.

The Sheldrake, well theres a strange place for sure, not used as a pub it would seem, but people living in it - it would seem, makes you wonder if they are house sitters perhaps as the Never say die had some squatters in between being sold and new owners moving in, so i believe..

I did drive past seeing a builders truck loaded with exterior ply roofing boards that were for the ex pubs use I should guess..

Question. If its not a pub, what would it become?  would change of use be permitted to turn it into flats> or bedsits, or I dunno...

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

Well since it changed hands last August, there have been No Planning Applications, No Licensing Applications in or pending and the same vehicles seem to be parked there 24/7.

Having paid just shy of £140,000 for it, it seems extremely odd that has remained closed since the sale.

Having asked our Ward Councillors and Paul Honeywood if they know anything about what may be happening the only comment that yielded was that "I've heard that the Corner Lodge owners bought it and were going to make it another Care Home" Seems unlikely as the buyers Nicholas Young and Craig Paul Young do not appear to have any connection to Corner Lodge.

Another rumour doing the rounds is some sort of super/mini market and Launderette. But seeing as the previous Laundrette just across the road closed apparently through lack of custom that part at least seems unlikely.

So no idea seems to be too far out there, but after all, in Jaywick Sands the rumours will continue until something actually happens.

Dave, I hope I`m wrong but sure the last time any doors were open to the unused launderette when i drove past, i`m sure i saw it filled with car tyres.. quite some time ago now but lets hope not.

Next question, where has our long gone  Landlord gone?

Rumours of where he has gone are rife, but have noticed both the whole of the old Laundrette and the rest of block plus the Low Tide Cafe have been completely boarded up in the last few days. Also an enquiry about 199 Meadow Way, the Energy Alliance office. from a local Solicitor about a week ago. So looks ike something is in the offing.
