I wonder if it's a marketing ploy. Used to be popular in the 70s for supermarkets to mis-spell something on the makeshift posters they used to put up in their windows, in the hope that someone would pop in to point it out... and do a bit of shopping while they were there. Apparently it used to work quite effectively.

I saw this two years ago on the A29. "Xmas Reefs". It took me some time to work it out but I laughed till my sides hurt

It's perfect Hove-speak and I don't think it's ironic or deliberate

It's not just Medway, you only have to trawl through ebay to see it's a nationwide problem which is only getting worse.....
