Bank Holiday Beach Party!





It's been a couple of weeks since the UK had a Bank Holiday, so we're mighty pleased there is another one this Monday.  Apparently much of the USA is also on holiday too.

So what better time than to plan a Beach Party and BBQ at the new Seaside in London City West.

Starting 3am SL time (11am in the UK), come enjoy a sausage or two and a burger on the beach with all the beautiful people.

Start getting your costumes sorted!

Here comes the Sun




It may only be Wednesday, but we can look forward to a wonderful 3 day weekend ahead.
The Sun has got its hat on and its certainly going to be wall to wall heat in the UK, hopefully a lot of sunshine too!

It's important to take on lots of fluids during this hot weather.  So, as part of our public service, we thought we'd look at the all important grog deals this weekend ahead...

Most Supermarkets have some good offers but by far the best this weeks is Tesco and Asda.  And if you can stomach the stuff, Tesco's offer of 18 cans of Carling for £10 is perhaps the best offer of the lot.

We hope you will share your tinnies with us here in London City as we head into the weekend with a special Beach Party and Barbie on Bank Holiday Monday!

Remember to shop early, in case of a Beer Shortage!


Bring back the Beach



One of the things we missed the most from the long history of London City, is the Pier and Beach.

In a recent survey of visitors, this was the top 'lost' attraction that they said they would like to see resurrected.

Using some clever jiggery pokery, master builder Mr Billy Arentire has identified a great spot of land on London City North region along the the South end of the sim, where the pier and beach will fit in nicely.

Now would be a great time to check out your inventory for swimwear, we're hoping to have the build finished in time for the Bank Holiday Weekend!

Manchester





Last night a suicide bomber detonated a device at the end of the Ariana Grande concert as people were leaving the Manchester Arena.  22 people, including children are dead and 60 wounded.  

A distressing day for the whole country. Our thoughts and prayers are for the families of the victims and the survivors of this horrific incident.

Eurovision: For Once, We Weren't Robbed





Congratulations to Portugal who led throughout the voting and won the contest.

What a highly entertaining Eurovision it was and thank you to everyone who packed out London City last night. You came to party and bear witness the UK's expected decimation in perhaps our last Eurovision before we exit the European Union.

To everyones surprise, the UK did better than it has in many many years, with our entry by Lucy Jordan.

Voting is always a bit strange in this contest, with each country awarding points in the traditional manner used for centuries.  But then, the somewhat suspicious pile-on telephone votes at the end, that suddenly award a few hundred points here and there and can catapult a country from last place, to first place.

When the countries had finished voting, UK was in 8th place, our highest ranking this millennium. It was surprising to see that bottom of the board was Spain with nil points (keep your hands off Gibraltar) and Germany who received no votes until the last moment when they picked up 3 points from Ireland (who are pissed off with England about this border business post-Brexit).



Although the telephone voting skewed the end results for many of the countries, Germany and Spain remained the resounding losers of the night.

And UK, although not winning, did far better than in decades, either picking up some sympathy votes at the cost of the Germans, or a bit of admiration for our intended future.

All in all, one of the most enjoyable Eurovision's in a long time.  Thank you for being part of it.
