Slip Sliding Away

A couple of local disappearances have been angering blog readers this week.

Firstly, the big slide at Mayflower Park in The Hamptons has vanished because of apparent safety concerns.

Meanwhile blog reader Ben is vexed at the sudden disappearance of a piece of Worcester Park 'street furniture':

"Do you have any idea where the bus shelter [on Malden Road] outside Worcester Park Station has gone, or if there are plans for them to remove the one on the other side of the road?

As well as protecting me from the elements in the winter it also had a useful but inaccurate Countdown display".

I think there is a great opportunity here - put the slide that has been taken away from The Hamptons outside Worcester Park station, where the bus shelter once was and give commuters something to smile about whilst they wait for the 213 to Sutton.

I think I'll write to my local councillor straight away.
