Away man I lived there for 14 year. My son lives there and the rest of my family use the land behind jets now and againIt’s not Canary Wharf because it’s an old seaside resort in an economically deprived area. I’m not convinced about the future of all of the enterprises but you didn’t mention Strollers or The Hideout which seem to be doing ok, Gabbies and the Shagorika must have both been there nearly 40 years, The Promenade is busy most nights, Elite Hotel wanting to add rooms and investment in the leisure club, beach huts, etc. It’s not all a success but I wish the best of luck to those that keep trying and fuckers like you being negative and revelling in the failure of fledgling businesses should fuck off.
I wish you fuckers would stop saying YOU have the beach. It’s a coastal city mate and takes max 6/7 minutes to get to the beach from anywhere within the city. Not once did I mention anything untoward to business down there. Owning a business myself in the city I know how hard it is to get on.
