26 March - Sweet Coralline

Coralline Walk Coralline Walk Coralline WalkYet another submission from a Bonkers reader. Bonkers to be out in this cold weather if you ask me. And who’d be an MP?

Coralline Walk may boast one of the most attractive names in the borough but the reality hasn’t always lived up to the promise. But it’s amazing what a bit of paint can do as has been demonstrated by the refurbishment of several tower blocks visible from the trains going into London Bridge.

The rejuvenated concrete shown is close to Abbey Wood station and has been spruced up through the joint efforts of Dulux and its “Let’s Colour Campaign” and Trust Thamesmead, and presumably a number of enthusiastic residents.

And what has this got to do with Bexley council? Not a lot, but Lesnes Abbey councillors John Davey (Conservative majority over Labour, 289) and Eleanor Hurt (majority 6) were both present. Presumably this bit of wall painting will not draw the attention of the council’s clean up team.
