Yes, yes we know, it’s been forever (4 months in fact) and if we are honest writing regularly here never really happened in 2006 but things should be getting back to normal very soon, and we will (once again) regale you all with tales from the other side of Ely.
Why the lull in writing? General blog burnout and “lackoftimeandattention-itis”, a fall in contributor features and the local media’s obsession with the car parking debate (see ‘ETA v ECDC’ below) to name a few reasons.
Were we missed? Probably not, though one anonymous soul did find the time to email this: ‘Oi you lazy git, so nothning has happened since August? I hope you dont get any council tax funding for this pile of misspelt crap’. Misspelled crap? Oh, the irony!
Our interest is piqued again. We have several local history features planned including a pictorial look at St. Martin’s jam factory that once traded from Bray’s Lane in the ‘1930 onwards, thanks to recently discovered photographs and letters kindly donated by John Evitt.
