Rock Gardens tour

THIS WEEK IN 1999: Kids steer away from a life of crime

Have your say

I was taken to task over my comments last week when I published a photo of the Southsea rock gardens fountain as it once was.

David Baynes and his friends are Friends of Southsea Rock Gardens and they were not impressed by me, saying that the gardens are in better condition now than they have been for years.

Fair dos David, but I still think that the widening of the pavements some years ago destroyed the part that hid the fountain and was detrimental.

David tells me that there is a tour of the gardens on July 8 from 2pm to 5pm. If you’re interested, call him on (O23) 9283 1461.
