The town centre’s looking very much better now the scaffolding has been taken down from the town hall and its newly painted façade has been revealed.
For those who’re wondering. Yes, it’s always been painted. No, the unicorn has never been painted (apart from its horn which is covered in gold leaf).
The gates to the churchyard will also be looking great once both sides have been painted.
It’s a shame about the bent railings at the edge of the pavement and the peeling paint on the façade of the HSBC (which may be closed or renamed in the near future). Of course once the painting’s been finished the ladder will be gone!
For the life of me I don’t understand why the railings are there.
