Leave flowerbeds and let action by locals take root
FOLLOWING the recent regrettable decision by our council to grass over our flowerbeds, it is time for a new way for our city to show itself at its best.
Of course, compared to the effects of the budget cuts upon some charities, then these flowerbed problems are small beer. However, the maintaining of the flowerbeds is one area where local people can make a difference to our city.
I'm sure there are many groups and local residents, myself included, who would willingly carry out basic weeding and litter-picking on a reasonably regular basis and all at our own cost.
Here at Five Lamps, we have a large attractive flowerbed that is already planted up with perennials. It is economic madness to, firstly, spend precious money ripping out good plants and then spend even more money grassing over the area.

At the very least, council officers should leave alone what we already have here. Perhaps some guerilla gardeners will then come along and show what they can do.
Perhaps we can spread some wildflower seeds on the flowerbeds to see what mother nature can do.
