Being driven through Bristol recently l was only able to get a quick snap of a protest sign that has gone up in Haymarket ‘bearpit’ which is trying to gain public support against a proposal to allow advertising in city parks.
Would we entertain a similar scheme in Bath to try and raise much-needed revenue for our cash-strapped local authority? There’s already talk of sponsored litter-bins. I wouldn’t mind that if it means they get emptied on a more regular basis.
Big posters inside the Sydney Gardens temple might stop endless graffiti appearing on its ‘labouring’ walls. While canal side advertising might attract attention from boat people and walkers and help pay for maintenance work?
Certainly, the litter bins could be sponsored by pet food manufacturers as dog owners are one of the biggest users of city parks.
I am being deliberately provocative to spark discussion. Over to you!?
