You will probably have noticed that there’s a small shipping container near to what we still think of as the Ian Goodchild Centre, next to the theatre. You’ll also have seen that it’s been ‘disguised’ by trellis panels, at the base of which are flower troughs. The troughs were meant to be planted with suitable shrubs/creepers to disguise the shipping container even more. But, as any gardener knows, you have to tend to flower pots and troughs or they don’t flourish. As was the case here.
If we remember correctly, the container is a home for equipment taken from Arena before it was demolished. Maybe the new leisure centre will be up and running before the trellis actually supports anything green??
Both our photos show a corner of the neglected pond. As it happens, Surrey Heath Rotary is proposing to refurbish this once-pleasant little area. If you’re interested, have a look at yesterday’s post on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/surreyheathrotary/
