10 years ago

Hard to believe it but it was 10 years ago last week that the blow-up Stonehenge made by artist Jeremy Deller appeared on Christchurch Green. Here was how Wansteadium reported it at the time – it seems to have coincided with a period of unrelenting joy and goodwill to all.

In other news that week, a lion was on the loose in Essex, a new ice-cream parlour (Mario’s Shake Shack?) was due to open, and there was much debate about the future of the Evergreen Field following the sale of the site to a developer.
