    Bournemouth was looking a bit sorry for itself (like a lot of towns these days - all charity and vape shops) with a boarded up House of Fraser and one of the Wetherspoons closed

    The barman at our hotel kept enthusing about Christchurch market so we duly took two buses to it, complete waste of time but I suspect the cold weather kept some stallholders at home.

    Liked Salisbury a lot apart from the usual crop of charity shops there were some interesting antique and jewellery shops and it had character.

    Bought my first effort of decent hifi from that House of Fraser store, following a Trio demonstration day

    The closure of any Wetherspoons pub is something to be celebrated - but I can understand the 'desertification' of the town's high streets. As you say, all the once useful shops have gone only to be replaced by charity shops and cafés.

    My parents used to go to Bournemouth when I was about 8 - 10 years old, and my mother went to a private girls school in Christchurch when she was a girl, so would go and visit the headmistress there. As a holiday destination it was not too bad, but I doubt if I would want to go back again.

    Salisbury on the other hand is much more interesting place to visit.

    Wetherspoons are great the first thing I do when we go on a day trip is to check if there's a local one to feed the family for lunch. I've tried local pubs before to give them trade but they never seem to offer the vegetarian options I need and kids meals.

    I also like to read Tim Martin's page in their mag too he's usually got something true to say about the state of politics or media.

    Tim Martin's biased rantings is the prime reason why I boycott Wetherspoons. A second reason is the indifferent attitude of the staff, the third is the poor range of ales on offer, and the fourth is that tables are too close together for comfort.
