Sad tale of vandlism

Continuing the sad tale of the vandalism of the Strand Gardens. I, too, dislike walking past the open space now the beautiful trees have been felled.

My great grandfather, a Mr Pannell, planted the chestnut tree opposite the Savoy Cinema and we have always referred to it as "Granfer's Tree". He also helped with the planting of the trees in the Plantation/Madeira Walk.

The Strand Gardens could be a lovely oasis in the town centre with a decent shelter and laid out flower beds. On second thoughts, other vandals would soon destroy those. At least we still have our beautiful war memorial.

I am a "born and bred" Exmothian and there are not many of us left to protect our town.
