Give them a medal for re­plac­ing bench

Uxbridge Gazette - - OPINION -

NOT A Com­mem­o­ra­tive Plaque!

See­ing a plaque (brass) on a re­cently ar­rived bench (close to the Rayn­ers Lane post of­fice) I ex­pected it to be cel­e­brat­ing the life of some lo­cal per­son (de­parted from this mor­tal coil) renowned for their good works.

To say the least, I was sur­prised to find it was just a state­ment, say­ing that it is part of the Mayor Kr­ish­nan Suresh’s re­gen­er­a­tion pro­gramme.

A plaque is not re­quired for that. Benches that are fall­ing apart should be re­placed au­to­mat­i­cally.

Fur­ther­more, it would be help­ful if they had no­tices on say­ing that the benches are for ‘el­derly, dis­abled and those less able to stand’, as some bus and train seats do!

Mov­ing on to the lack of re­li­gious pro­grammes – I could not help but no­tice a se­vere lack of Chris­tian re­li­gious films on the television this Christ­mas.

Have they gone to Sky in­stead of BBC/ITV etc?

If so, there are some of us who do not have SKY, do not want SKY and can­not af­ford SKY. MRS M T B EARL Hamil­ton Cres­cent
