18 May - Bexley borough. The decline and fall

From a Sidcup correspondent comes a report complete with photographic evidence of what happens so very quickly when Bexley council decides that it can stop looking after its parks and open spaces.

Sidcup PlaceWhilst Bexley’s webmaster has yet to be informed Sidcup Place has been left to the ravages of wind and weather and Mother Nature.

What was a beautiful walled garden a year ago (Photo 1) is now partly bare and partly overgrown and is in no danger of winning the Britain in Bloom competition.

This is likely to be the Bexley we have to look forward to under the relentless programme of cuts. Street cleaning, grass cutting, leaf clearance, security and graffiti clearance are all reduced or abandoned altogether.

And 27 parks and open spaces are on the list for possible sale.
