Occasionally I receive enquiries about the progress of environmental improvements in the Aquarium Street area. The new green space that replaces some of the former jungle of bedsitters and flatlets is named Gerddi Heulwen which translates as Sunshine Gardens!

These shots was taken yesterday (Sunday) by Yours Truly. Shown above is the John Street end of the park, and below is the Abbey Street end.

Even though the work is unfinished, Westenders use Gerddi Heulwen already as a shortcut to and from town, or a place to sit and contemplate the meaning of life, or an arena for substance addicts to shriek obscene insults at each other.

Meanwhile, efforts continue to drag Abbey Street into the 21st century:
