What on Earth was in the mind of those who ‘trimmed’ the beautiful willows along the Embankment?
Having planted the summer bedding plants, which are promising a beautiful display, the council’s misguided action makes The Embankment a laughing stock.
The pleasure of walking beneath and through these boughs is now denied us. I cannot think of a valid health and safety reason for this desecration.
If I find out the coiffeur of these willows, I shan’t become a client!
I admire the work of those who look after our parks and have been impressed by their care and attention (today I saw the play equipment in Russell Park being checked, the grass is mown, bins constantly emptied) and am always grateful for their work.
But who sanctioned this? Why?
