"Would it make sense for these paintings to at least have a perspex sheet over them to stop further attempts to ruin them?  Next time we might not be so lucky in being able to simply over paint the damage."

Pete and I took the train up there last weekend as we'd heard that it had some garden centres. We were really surprised by the area, Britain's "Horticultural Mile'. I wrote an article with photos about it for Londonist which you can read in full here:

Hugh Myddleton, New River local hero and he whose name our shopping street bears, is now a talking statue

Talking Statues is an initiative of Sing London. …
