Words from a bench, June 2015

daisy made of daisies

We had a bumper crop of offerings for the Spring 2015 edition, with a theme of ‘Birds’.

We hope you like them, and are inspired by the thoughts expressed. The park benches themselves have just been repaired and repainted, but we will shortly be placing the new QR codes on them, so that park visitors can scan and enjoy the poetry/prose, in situ.
