Nice to see new benches being fitted along the Brook this morning.
Very fortuitous you mentioning benches Leatash because I have just come back from a few days in Falmouth and noticed whilst there (couldn't miss if truth be known) that their public benches by the beaches have been brightly painted in primary and secondary colours in a gloss like paint. Looked very attractive. Also the doors in the public toilets at Gyllingvase beach had also been painted using the same colours and paint as on the benches.
Some might think that garish. I thought it brightened everything up.
Sadly they are the usual green and yes Lynne a few bright colour would brighten the place up.
Green is great, nothing wrong with that, but a green and gold branding, or something that we can transform throughout, lampost, lightening etc.
Pity they weren’t putting them along the sea Wall!!
Thats down to railtrack they own the sea wall.
They do own the Sea Wall yes, but I don't see them not going for it, if they don't have to have the responsibility of maintaining it.
Was it not for safety reasons they were removed did one not get lifted from its position by heavy sea's and thrown on to the track.
Many were from beyond repair, so for the safety I guess they were removed, don't see why items like this shouldn't reach the top of the to do list.
Top of my to do list would be resurface Exeter Road but DCC seem to think Coryton Close was a priority i wonder why.
Apparently a spokesperson at Network Rail said they will never agree to put benches on the sea wall due to health and safety reasons. When I asked in a meeting a couple of years ago what the reasons were I was told that people could stand on the benches to get onto the line! I did point out the that the low wall all the way to DW provided much easier access to the line!
