H&S

I found this hard to believe on tonight’s local news.

The reason that these fantastic people have to remove their award-winning and beautiful flowers and plants? Health and Safety. Now I saw this street on TV and there certainly seemed to be no ‘obstructions’ which would prevent someone in a wheelchair or a parent pushing a pram from enjoying the street.  Indeed, a local playgroup bring the toddlers to the street to enjoy the plants.

 

I have a feeling that there’s something going on here under the surface. Most odd. Or is it nanny state yet again?
