Dragon at Botanic Gardens





Every so often you come across something simple that the council has done which makes you think-that was a good idea. In Botanic Gardens there is a chain-saw sculpture of a dragon.The children at the local primary school were involved with the project-not wielding the chain-saw but writing a poem which be seen engraved along the tail. My children have outgrown regular visits to the park (for the time being) so I had missed the installation of this artwork. It, like the gardens are well worth a visit. My colleague Cllr John Dodd has launched a campaign to bring back the boats to the gardens which will improve still further the facilities. Personally I always like the Brass Bands on a Sunday afternoon.
