I was sent these two pictures by a friend who knows I love hate such things:
These two professionally-deigned and printed, lovingly laminated signs were affixed to just about everything that didn’t move, totally oblivious to the grammar crimes committed therein. I guess first impressions no longer count?
Intrigued, I looked up this bunch.
It is, according to the website they’ve had set up, “A community led street redesign project with Sustrans in Barking & Dagenham” – luckily, it’s only a two year project. What that seems to mean, according to my friend, is that they swan around, getting residents to fill in questionnaires and holding ‘community events’ that are supposedly attended by the locals (but aren’t) and….well, that’s it.
It’s a two-year employment opportunity for a couple of university graduates, in other words. It’ll do nothing achieve nothing. And then they’ll move on to some other way to waste taxpayer money…
I wonder just how many more of these little projects are springing up. Is there one in your community? Do tell!
