History Replanted!


Kennedy GardensThis weekend saw the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy. Of particular note was the minute by minute following of the action by BBC Radio 2. However some places seemed to have scrubbed history some time ago…

Where was I when JFK was shot?
I really cannot remember,
All I know from those years ago,
I was eight and it was November!

They dedicated a garden,
In the centre of Letchworth town,
A change of mind at Millenium,
Saw the garden turn all brown!

So now it’s Millenium Garden,
Replaced the Kennedy name,
It’s not bad, just rather sad,
The town’s just not the same.
