Anyone got any idea why there were/are masses of men in yellow jackets (obviously construction workers on Parkway) congregating in Victoria Park this morning? They seemed to be pouring out and making for the park - there were hundreds!

Has the site been evacuated...? or is this a huge Teddy Bears Picnic unsure.gif

A fire/emergency drill possibly?

That's what I hoped Bill1 but it was quite a sight and I guess I am a bit spooked by the AWRE fire just now... (and I do realise Parkway is hardly nuclear...but a fire would be devastating nonetheless).

Wonder if NWN have any clues?

Love it! laugh.gif They would certainly have had a HUGE choice!..there were loads of them, emerging from every corner of the site and pouring lemming-like into Victoria Park...

Ah, thank you Admin smile.gif ...although I do prefer the Village People auditions suggestion better!

I just wish I wasn't driving when I witnessed it because it would have made a hilarious photo.
