This week I am staying with my family in Cheltenham, for that is where they all live. It’s been some time since I was here properly, and I would make the following observations:
1. Cheltenham gives me asthma.
2. In the same way as Letchworth Garden City makes a feature of trees and plants, Cheltenham has seen a number of new bits of concrete erected, as if it’s a beautiful material which adds a touch of je ne sais pas to a town. I don’t mean new buildings, I just mean lumps of concrete. There’s also a new circular piece of tarmac in the town centre, which you really ought to make sure you see if you’re ever here.
