UFL's (Up from London) seem to populate our North Norfolk coast and believe themselves to be an important part of our County, but as the majority purchase the cottages etc for weekends only, and use them during high days and holidays, our coastal villages are worse than graveyards on a bleak foggy november evening, when the UFL's are not in residence. Unfortunately due to properties being holiday lets or weekend homes more and more villages are loosing their community spirit. Bah humbug

Just you want until the UFLs have had enough of scraping their cars on the walls on either side of the coast road. It probably explains the phenomenon of arty tearooms popping up though. And do you have restaurants offering such modern delicacies as fried giraffe afterbirth floating in rennet?

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

Today I envisaged the 4x4's driving through Stiffkey (pronounced Stukey) with those quaint flint walls on each side of the road, heaven forbid another vehicle came the other way, well I didn't envisage it I was fortunately driving through Stiffkey and had a silent laugh at the problem the UFL's may encounter with having no road markings and having to give way constantly on their journey through our beautiful North Norfolk coastal villages. Still I am sure they must appreciate how wonderful this part of the UK is, even after all this time I still love travelling along the coast road, rain or shine, or even a flurry of snow, just love it!

Most of you won't know the road, it's narrow at the best of times, and you get people who think they're entitled to all of it coming in theopposite cirection. Often driving a Merc. From memory, even the Germans called it "the car with built in priority".

Here's what I'll do when I hit the lottery. I'll buy a cottage (I'll be an OFA - over from America) and use it for 3-4 weeks out of the year. Then I'll arrange for you to use it for squatter parties as long as you promise to feed the fish.

Seriously, that is annoying. Northern Michigan communities complained about the same thing some years ago. People bought the cottages for summer weekend use, but come winter, the communities would be ghost towns. Then the visitors would wonder why the communities had no stores, gas stations, etc.

And if somebody wanted to start a new business, they complained about it spoiling the area?

Michiganders are OK with it as long as it's a bar.
