No signs for visitors
Confusion over Tyne Tees Run
Just came back from the sea front in South Shields where I’d hoped to pick up a few interesting photos of vintage commercial vehicles taking part in the annual Tyne Tees run today, fortunately for me I knew that the event was finishing in Gypsies Green Stadium. Not so for many others, I bumped into knots of people in the Bents Park who were expecting old Austin 6’s and Morris Minor vans lined up on the grass, I had to point them a further hundred yards along the road. Although there is an announcement on South Tyneside council’s website there were precious few signs about the event until you were almost upon Gypsies Green.
A great pity that nobody thought of putting a sign at the entrance of Bents Park to redirect people, we need visitors to keep returning here yes?
