Normal service will be resumed on Wednesday.
An email from our Island correspondent confirms fbb's arrival arrangements.
All is going well for the impending Royal visit. The entire island has been repainted and Calthorpes Road should have been resurfaced! The Boathouse (nosh - fbb) is booked for 1pm and we will meet you there. The Lord Lieutenant is unfortunately at another much less important event so will not be at Fishbourne to formally welcome you.
Typical of Lord Lieutenants; no sense of priority! Seen here recently welcoming another OAP.
