DISPLAYS: Fine effort in austerity

I would like to comment on the quality, quantity and variety of flora the council has achieved in Beech Grove this year.

It has surpassed previous years and our gutters and pavements have been a riot of colour for many weeks.

Combine this with the odd blocked drain and when it rains we are treated to some spectacular water features; this is a fine effort considering we live in an ‘austerity’ age.

I have no doubt the people responsible are planning some similar leaf displays over the end few months to see us through the winter.
