This is my first post since 1st April 2017, as I continue to be severely overwhelmed on so many fronts. I will fill in the gap when I get chance to breathe.
I’ve got to have a quick grumble about the concrete/granite/marble benches that are dotted around Erdington’s High Street.
- When they’re wet, the design of them means the water never drains off them.
- They are freezing to sit on, even if they are dry.
- Even if they’re dry, and the temperature’s hot enough to minimise the threat of frostbite from sitting on one, they’re dreadfully uncomfortable, and have no backrest.
