YOU MIGHT have at least hinted where the Oyster Festival camp site “close to the town centre”, or “old Whitstable” as the Boden-Crok-Kidsons call it, will be sited. Speculation is rife – the top of Tankerton Slopes, Cornwallis Circle, Long Rock – surely they don’t have their eyes on the Rec again? Favoured option among us old-timers Is The Street! It just gets sillier and sIllier – residents will be asked to leave for the duration to free up space for the high-spending visitors.
