So difficult to find anything but basic white chalk in London, yet here a small stationery shop on Queen Street, Busselton with 25k pop'n has all kinds (including 'school quality') - staff apologised as there had been a run on the giant chalk - London shopping priorities are positively skewed. Have procured you some in case of chalking-up emergency, Manar.

Pavement artists panic buying?

@taniwha Um, actually you're very close - there was a big outdoor event on, and as a result people were leaving messages to people all over pavements and roads... that's why there was no giant chalk - I don't know why people wait for special occasions to leave people messages on pavements, though, I think they ought to do it every day

So do I. I have an old sim card on an old mobile. I've often wondered about the calls I'd get if I started writing the phone number on walls.

That's what I was thinking Carole :-) The problem isn't ideas, it's having time.

@Dhamaka @taniwha you must stop taunting us and get these articles written and share already... on which, I wholeheartedly support any Call to Action related to increasing supply of chalk in UK shops, I do hope you will be 'pro' chalk
