Nailsea Croquet Club is a Pokemon Stop!

Nailsea Croquet Club would appear to be a Pokemon stop (if that's the correct term). I'm not sure whether this is a marketing opportunity or a security risk - probably both. Yesterday a lady wandered in with her two young sons. I did the usual "Can I help you? which can be translated to mean either as "Can I persuade you or your children to take up croquet?" or "Do you realise you are on private property?" She continued to peer at her phone and assured me pleasantly that she was fine and just trying to work out how to claim it. One of the boys explained animatedly what Pokemon was and told me that the Croquet Club was definitely the stop. It was a joy to hear the words being uttered so it's got to be free publicity. I think we will just have to be less careless about leaving our wallets around for a while.
