Particular thanks to Dean at the nearby flowerstall for all his hard work and let’s hope we can keep it looking this lovely from now on as it really does cheer up everyone who sees it.

  1. I saw it the other week, looked lovely. Maybe the new hotel can sponsor Melbourne Square when they open as part of their CSR? Worth a punt although no idea who the new owners are??

    1. I think you’re right Diane. The hotel, which will almost certainly be a Holiday Inn Express, is the obvious candidate to sponsor it.

  2. One of the two box plants was stolen last night. The thieves were after both but were disturbed and ran off with just the one. It should be on CCTV so will ask the police if they can help identify the thieves.
