Those of you who have driven through Sutton for the last 11 months or so cannot have failed to notice the sad, broken, eyesore, the gash in the wall alongside the green on Portland Place. An unfortunate consequence of a diesel spill and a following car that skidded and demolished our wall. The driver and car presumably have long since got over the accident. Not so our wall as the responsibility for repair was left to authorities NCC and BDC to sort out and took sometime to resolve. Well eventually NCC agreed to arrange a repair and here we are, finally, with a wall repaired and looking very respectable. Incidentally did you notice that rather swish vinyl banner that covered the wall whilst we awaited a repair.
I’m off to the Gate pub this evening for a meal and if I see the landlord I’ll probably thank him on behalf of Sutton residents and travellers through the village alike, for, allegedly, it was he who provided that banner.
