Good to see Kent Highways' contractors out yesterday installing the new, long-awaited 'heritage' lamps along Wellington Crescent. Of course, we had ours changed along Victoria Parade a year ago.
There's something rather odd about these 'new' lamps though.
They're not actually new. They're just the old lamps with new tops and a couple of fancy bits from B&Q bunged on them.
Presumably someone will come along and paint them black at some point, so they at least look half convincing, but I won't be holding my breath. Honestly, what a cheap trick!
