Post Bly­ton comes a blight on the town

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.
