Workmen were busy removing what is left of the gunmetal cycle hoops outside the Guildhall – and on the other side of the High Street – ready for Sunday’s Remembrance Day parade.
Despite warnings – admittedly giving the wrong date for removal – one bike went into the back of a lorry still attached to its hoop.
The hoop and the bike will be back again on Monday.
One of the workmen told me a pink bike has been attached to a hoop for the whole year!
I am also informed that – despite the number of hoops missing from outside the Guildhall — there is a pile of them ‘back at the depot’.
Not doing much good there B&NES!
