Aidan should be proud of his letter

AIDAN should think himself still young and no longer little, and be proud of his first letter to The Eastbourne Herald (April 1).

My favourites include:

A shoe shop offer, “Buy one, get one free”;

the pier has a notice, “Hold handrail when windy”.

In the small ads recently:

manure and stones for “a rookery” (stone the crows!);

a bed with “metal side bards” (to sleep or not to sleep);

a greenhouse with some broken glass (those in glass houses...)
