Sure not many will give a dam about un-usual floral activity in Station Lane but for those that do, try and follow this new weirdness.
In front of Bargain Booze are 4 wooden planters. They were purchased by a political group other than Labour. For 4 years they were left un-attended and full of weeds while close by other plants are maintained.
In the true spirit of community good last year not many probably noticed the weeds suddenly disappeared and ever green plants appeared. Not provided by any council but by surrounding residents hard up for cash in their own lives. Again this year in April no one will have noticed the weeds vanished and any bare soil planted up. Some local business’s donated some items.
This must have hit someone’s nerve as on Saturday at 5,30am all the ever green plants have been removed and a bright display of summer flowers has been planted by a contractor. An unusual early start perhaps! The question the residents are asking is a little information would have been polite and what about painting the wooden tubs and fixing the broken parts that they were planning? The flowers look lovely but what about all year when the rubbish builds up in the middle of each one? One lady commented “I hope they get watered but also hope the wood does not rot, the evergreens needed little watering. That was our solution to the mess we have to live in”.
The risk assessment would be a cracking read if it had been included in the street plan. But hey ho that’s the political rush jobs we put up with.
