Our prized garden city
Sir – Your picture of John Marks the chairman of the Welwyn Garden Society in Japan (WHT, April 23) is another reminder of how highly regarded this town is internationally. Apart from the architecture it is very important that the town is well maintained
Sir - Your picture of John Marks the chairman of the Welwyn Garden Society in Japan (WHT, April 23) is another reminder of how highly regarded this town is internationally.
Apart from the architecture it is very important that the town is well maintained. I am employed by the only relocation company based in Welwyn Garden City and frequently witness the WOW! from our international clients as they come over the White Bridge or recognise the view North from the Rooks Hill roundabout.
It is therefore vital that vistas such as these are carefully maintained - the trees pruned, the beds beautifully planted and perhaps more importantly the grass frequently cut, thus enabling so many citizens and visitors to walk or even lunch on the grass as summer approaches.
Walk now across Howardsgate and you can admire a magnificent display of spring blooms. Yes it may cost a bit to maintain this picture but it is vital to keep WGC the finest garden city in the world.
