Woodborough in Bloom

Please does anyone know who is responsible for placing a cheap wood looking seat at the corner of Smalls Croft planted area?

It is nothing to do with Woodborough in Bloom or the Parish Council.

Jan Turton

Reply from John Hoyland:

In reply to Jan’s question about the fake wooden bench sited on Smalls Croft, I can tell you that Gedling BC delivered it and positioned it either Wednesday or Thursday.

Beyond that I do not have any other info.
