As far as I'm aware the Mesnes Park Friends group were never against the park being renovated Mick, in fact if it wasn't for their hard work and campaigns to the council the park would have deteriorated further and probably a housing estate built in its place.

I was walking up to The Brocket for a Christmas meal and spotted the shadows of the gate. I just can't resist a photo opportunity ;)

Great shot Dave, do you always carry you camera around with you.

Once again, a great image. I realize that this has been said many times before, but I recognized this as an "Oy" offering before seeing the caption! Thank you Dave for this and the many wonderful pictures you have shown us.

Well said Ellen, this is an 'Oy'. Your pictures Dave are a joy to this forum.
