Curiosity over came me Sunday, having read in your paper that the attraction that the population of this great city had been waiting for had arrived. So I decided to go and see myself what all the fuss was about.

I proceeded to drive into the city centre, firstly I had to negotiate various road closures around the town hall, apparently the city was hosting a cycle race in aid of sport relief, not alot of people knew about this, as I drove round it became apparent that there was more marshals than spectators.

I asked for directions to a car park that was open near to Barkers Pool, as this was where the attraction was situated, no help at all from the marshals.

I was expecting a large queue waiting for the ride, as it was advertised as being open from 10am, to my surprise not a single person was in sight.

Just goes to show how disorganised this city is.
