A MAN walks into a shop in Stockton Heath and bumps into an old mate.

He says: “I’ve not seen you for ages. How are things in Stockton Heath?”

“About the same” he replies. “The main car park is full of pot holes.

“The swing bridges are in need of long lost maintenance and painting. The main A49 through the village is frequently chock a block with traffic (too many traffic lights). The toilet block at the bottom of the car park an eyesore.”

“So no change then?”

“That’s right. Ta ta.”
