Bird House Boarded Up

You may recall the nice photos that I posted last year on this site, about the ugly and decaying building known as "The Bird House" (see post in Feb 2004).

Well I am pleased to report that progress has been made in restoring this once fine house back to its former glory.

The broken windows, that allowed a colony of pigeons to roost there, have been boarded up.


Which century will it be I wonder, when the owners and the council get around to actually restoring this building?

In my view, by their inaction, they are taking the piss out of the voters and the residents of Croydon.

Council Tax Up Again!

Croydon Council, not content with presiding over the ongoing decay of this borough, will be putting council tax up again this year.

The rise for 2005 will be 5%

The rise in 2004 was 7%

The rise in 2003 was 27%

Despite these inflation busting rises, the council have still managed to bankrupt themselves.

Not very impressive!
