There are events all over the UK today as part of heritage open days. Churches and museums will be opening to the public and historic houses that aren’t usually open. The weather doesn’t seem great, but I might see how it goes and find somewhere local to go. The Oak House at West Bromwich is a good choice.
I took photos in the park the other day. We used to go there as children during the summer holidays and take jam sandwiches and a bottle of water. There was a water fountain and paddling pools. The paddling pools have gone and replaced with those skateboard ramps. They protect the kids around here with speed humps and then encourage them to skateboard on those ramps. Many of the kids can’t afford skateboards round there. The council puts stuff in for themselves and their kids. The leisure centre used to be for swimming, now it’s for getting a sun tan.
