I am going to commit blasphemy right now. As you all know, my recent posts have been somewhat affected by developments going on back where I grew up. I have now seen what they propose to do….
I am really sorry, to all who wanted to save our old school – but frankly, the plans are fantastic! If anything, once the old school buildings are destroyed, there will be more green space than there is now. The new school is to be built, a very impressive school at that, adjacent to the Great North Road.
So I wish them well. As for those who yet have some wistful longing for what now passes into history, a record of that shall also be made, in accordance with and as a condition of the selfsame planning permission that authorises the new facilities (I use the word “shall” quite deliberately, by the way, as opposed to the ordinary and usual auxiliary “will”).

I have only one word for this. It is this: WOW!
