WHERE have have all the flowers gone?

I refer to one of the most beautiful features Lowestoft inherited from the Victorians … Kensington Gardens.

I remember one of the highlights of my childhood visiting Kensington Gardens.

I refer to one of the most beautiful features Lowestoft inherited from the Victorians … Kensington Gardens.

I remember one of the highlights of my childhood visiting Kensington Gardens. It was beautiful, well maintained, perfect in every way, an absolute joy you didn't want to leave. It was locked at sunset and opened early morning.

The lake was clean and the layout very well designed. Beautiful bridge over the pond, a fountain and waterfall; the pond was clean, full of lily's and hundreds of fish. Flowers and well established bushes were breathtaking.

I would suggest anybody that has not visited the gardens, but like myself, have fond memories of Kensington Gardens, to stay well away.

I visited them and saw roof tiles falling off buildings, decayed walkways through the gardens, rockery stones displaced, flower beds that have been trampled and a stagnant pond. It is a mess. There is no excuse for this. It can, and should, be returned to its former glory forthwith.
