    Is this related to the mysterious ugly black box in the park?

      No, apparently that’s got something to do with hi-speed internet.

        It is related to the ugly black box after all. I don’t know who decided that the box would go there, it surely could have been put behind a wall in the car park, but I have instructed that it must be shifted. This will probably mean that the electricity supply can now not be done this Sunday though.

    The mystery of the black box is solved! It is a random place to place something so ugly. Glad it is being moved. The way it appeared was quite sinister (I think I watch too much Dr Who).

      Just a lack of thought on the location I think. The new electric supply to the park will still go ahead on Sunday but just be what is called a “pot end” cable. Where the box will go is yet to be decided, but in a position where it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. The cable can be extended to it then. Just a good job its been sorted before the cable was connected and equipment installed.
