Greenwich Park fun

My friend Keith has sent me this picture of a carousel and says 'My local park is Greenwich Park. Frequently we get special visits and events. This is a roundabout from last year. Perhaps I should call it a carousel or a galloper!' Here, in Nottingham, the roundabouts tend to go to the nearby Highfields Park in Dunkirk or to Wollaton Park. Both are within easy walking distance of Lenton so we don't have anything to get grumpy about, but it would be nice to have a 'Roundabout Weekend' in Lenton Recreation Ground. It's a secure park with good public transport. Perhaps one day? In the meantime enjoy Keith's picture.

Detectives were yesterday investigating the deaths of three teenagers killed in separate knife attacks in a single day. Two died in London, one in a fight with a friend, and another after an attack in the street on Thursday. In Birmingham a 16-year-old was killed in what locals said was a row over a £10 note.
