Owing to the need for a plumber and boiler repairman*, I had to miss yesterday’s Ruskin Park fete (regular readers will be unsurprised).
Today my wife and I were determined to get out and enjoy some of the summer, so on our way to the Sun & Doves (for their very tasty fishcakes) we decided to take a look around the newly‐renovated park.
The last time I went there, just over a year ago, I was less than impressed. This time, I’m happy to say, it’s much improved. The grass is neater, the restored bandstand looks lovely, the flowerbeds were nicely maintained and the pond in the middle was clean and pleasant. It’s a lovely addition to the area.
You can see my photos here; I’d advise you to go along and take a look for yourself.
