The Palm Tree

There is a little roundabout at the top of our high street which has been the subject of numerous local "campaigns". The council wanted to remove it and replace it with traffic lights *gasp* which would be better for traffic flow but everyone was in uproar locally...Hahahaha, local politics...

Then there was a public consultation to see what we could do with the roundabout. I remember there were four options i.e. piece of art, village sign, antique lamppost and something else. I don't remember a palm tree being one of the options!

You wouldn't believe the fuss over this little roundabout. Someone has commented on our local forum - why is it a palm tree?? What's wrong with a good old fashioned English Oak? :) You just can't please anyone!
