At the start of a Trent Bridge test match

 

Test matches are great events and good for the city.
Less dressing up than I’ve seen before as spectators arrived.
But previously, the joy has been a tad at the expense of The Meadows, whose residents lost their car parking and their streets to cars of the visitors.

Well, not this morning.  All the parked cars this morning had permits and residents could be sure that when they came back from their trips, their usual space was waiting for them.
Good, yeah.
Except I’ve had recurrence of previous concerns pointed out – damage to the ornate iron work on the Trent Bridge, trip hazards on the NCH land, tipping, back gardens in need of clearance; and a new one, huge outbreaks of sprouting thorny twigs from the Robinia trees that were cut down a year or so back.
