Post Blyton comes a blight on the town
HAVING recently visited Harrogate, where Victorian foresight gave the town wonderful gardens, I find the whole concept of wealthy Beaconsfield, this tired (one of the top 10 wealthiest) Old Town, good at supporting the wasting of money on block paved speed humped roads and a few hanging baskets, and then, ‘begging’ local businesses to finance a few flower beds and roundabouts, a disgusting concept.
Once again, now that Enid Blyton’s plaque is in place, the town green is a mess again with weeds and a few, just about alive, roses.
Pathetic is the only publishable word I can think of.
Please take a look at my blog page and be envious of Harrogate – franks4x4-solograndetour. blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/why-cantall-british-towns-be-like.html.
