The area between our house and The Marches (a recent housing development where regular readers will remember we put in an offer for a house five minutes too late) has been lying empty for the last few months. It appears that this area has now been sold to a company that will be responsible for its upkeep as a public park; the sort of thing that the local council once did until money became such an issue. They are now building a children’s play park in the middle of the area.
During the last couple of days I’ve spotted the same two men arriving in their car around mid-morning, parking nearby and walking up to the fenced-off play park and looking longingly at the play equipment wondering when they’ll finally be allowed to play on the swings.
Or they could just be from the construction company overseeing its development.
But I prefer to think that it’s the former.
