40. It’s Like a City Center & it’s 15 years later…
So, the City’s new Bus Station was a month late & now in 2017, the new Haymarket Metro has been finished for ages. Thankfully, the City also got to retain & upgrade it’s best ever Club.
After all that jungle scuffling, you wouldn’t believe it, but we are actually great pals with the main dude from the (Greedy Crocodile… Ha!) development company now – It’s true…
These days, a full 15 years later, the whole city has changed & our paths cross yet again…
He now Chairs the Board of the Newcastle Business Improvement District Company NE1 That we’ve been involved with for the last few years as well.
It’s the one that works to improve the City Center, doing stuff like…
Putting free Table Tennis tables all over town, Restaurant Week, Alive after 5, Street Clean Teams, Screen on the Green, the Motor Show, the City Marina, Quayside Seaside, The NE1 Website, NE1 Magazine & a load of other cool stuff.
It’s a fab organisation that we both now come together on, along with a properly crack Staff Team & many other Newcastle business bods, to help improve, promote & develop the city center as an international destination.
He’s called Adam & we get along really well & have a great respect for one another. How times change – Mad huh..?
So in the end, respect, natural justice, common sense & Karma prevailed & absolutely everyone won.
Let’s hope if he ever reads this, he sees the funny side & doesn’t mind us referring to him as a ‘Bliddy Crocodile’, way back then… Ha!
With all that being over years ago now & time moving on, he’s actually moved up in our estimation & now progressed to the title of ‘Honorary Ape.’
& this whole stressful chapter pals, right up to today in 2017 – Is just this thing called Life… x
I wonder what happened next…?
