Notice Bored



You may by now have noticed the new addition to Worcester Park's 'street furniture' the form of the Worcester Park Notice Board, which has been plonked along the side wall of Pizza Express.

It has been there for a month and has yet to be populated with any notices. Perhaps this is because there is officially nothing going on in Worcester Park?

Blog reader Rick sent the above photo of the blank board, along with his thoughts on the new arrival:

"It’s a finely carved piece, with brass hinges and glazed doors and a personalised title above, all of which must have cost (us) at least a small fortune.

It’s clearly built to last, but all the same, being made of glass and flammable wood, I wonder if it’s survival will last much beyond closing time at our local bars.

I would have thought that Worcester Park library, in the centre of both the high street and the community, could have had some of its internal wall space utilised as the ideal location for “Worcester Park Notice Board”, at little cost beyond the notices and some blue tac.

I wondered if blog readers might be able to guess what important, informative noticesmight appear? Perhaps something about conserving paper and wood?

Alternatively, perhaps advice about paperless communication, by utilising the free Internet 30 yards away in Worcester Park library?"

Only time will tell what notices actually go up on this board. I'm sure you'll have your own suggestions.

I got bored with the barren council noticeboard at Stonecot Hill so I engaged in a little guerrilla noticeboarding.

Anyone can do it!

As for the origins of this noticeboard, I expect it came from the "public realm" money that's spent by the Cheam North and Worcester Park Local Area Committee according to residents' wishes and suggestions. Each local committee gets around £250,000 a year to spend on improvements to streets and public places.

Meetings are held every two months at St Bede's Centre in St Anthony's Hospital, North Cheam. Anyone can attend.

I'd like to see a notice saying 'Kev smells of wee' put in there.

You know you do Kev ha ha

They seem to be breeding. We've now got one at Stonecot Hill.

I think they're much more attractive than the cheesily-branded council ones of yore. I just hope they get well used.

Is anything up on the Worcester Park one yet?
