As regular readers will know, the Eye doesn’t show photos of major events in the town. There are plenty of better photographers, with better cameras, who do that. So, though we attended the formal opening of the ice rink in the recreation ground yesterday evening, we’re showing something a bit different – though related. Our photo is of the ‘water-filled barriers’ directing vehicles at the junction of Southwell Park Road and Charles Street. These have been installed to manage the extra traffic caused by people visiting the ice rink.
The good news is that, according to one local resident, the scheme is working well, rather to their surprise. We hope that this remains the case on a busy Saturday afternoon, when drivers queue to enter the Atrium car park. Fingers crossed!
