Traders say it with flowers.

Seems local traders are providing their own flowers in Kingsmead Square following a pull-out by a cash-strapped B&NES Parks Department. It’s looking good. Just need some sunshine.

Elsewhere there is a new floral entrance way to Green Street from the Milsom Street end.

A special mention for Northumberland Place – one of Bath’s famous ‘lanes’ – looking busy and beautiful thanks to its enterprising traders.

Elsewhere – in Manver’s Street work has got underway on transforming the office block at number 20.

What the office block looks like now.

‘This landmark building, offering accommodation from 7,717 – 45,136 sq ft is to be re-modelled and comprehensively refurbished to provide some of the very highest quality office space in Bath’ – according to it’s website

Finally, can someone tell me exactly what work is being carried out on the old Empire Hotel which currently looks a bit like a Christo and Jeanne-Claude ‘Reichstag wrap’.
