Happy New Year

 

Well – let’s start by wishing all my followers the very best for 2020.

I was out on the last day of the old year doing my Mayor’s Guides duties and making a few observations on the city.

I hear yet another coffee house is going into the old Patisserie Valerie unit at the entrance to Northumberland Place.

While l was there l couldn’t help but notice a lovely old ironwork scroll hanging to one side of the lane.

Be great if the traders could get together and put up a new sign within the frame – perhaps saying Northumberland Place or even Welcome to the Lanes?

Bit of self-promotion would be good to encourage traffic.

Sorry to see see further evidence of broken paving stones being replaced with tarmac  Рand this alongside Abbey Church Yard too.
