PLEASE TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE TWO PICTURES BELOW, ONE WAS TAKEN CHRISTMAS EVE 2010, THE OTHER TODAY.
BOTH FROM THE SAME PLACE ON THE ENGLISH BRIDGE. I THINK I HAVE GOT THEM AS CLOSE TO EXACT AS ONE CAN.
If you look really close at the detail you may see that there are some trees missing that were there last year. Can you see where?
If you look at the end of the car park there was last Christmas a number of fir trees going from behind the wall next to the river footpath up the hill to the left of the old RSI Building.
Thats not all if you look across the bank from those fir trees towards the red brick buildings towards Water Street, you should notice another tree missing on the lower slope.
Both pictures were taken using my Blackberry. Someone said that the temprature was some 20+ degrees lower this time last year. I will settle for this years temprature.
I took this years picture when we were on our way up town to wish as many shops in the town a Merry Christmas and to see how their sales were going this year. We were well received in all the places we visited but ran out of time before we got to as many as we would of wished.

As reported in the Shropshire Star, I am campaigning to have the footbridge from the Frankwell Car Park to the Riverside Shopping Centre called “The Zutphen Bridge”. As many will know that we are twinned with Zutphen a town in Holland and this connection between the two towns goes back further than the official 1977 Twinning ceremony, also further back than the Second World War. In fact our association with Zutphen goes back as far as 1586, when a certain Sir Philip Sidney was killed whilst attempting to push the Spanish out of Zutphen. In Zutphen they have Shrewsbury a traffic island named after Shrewsbury, as they are Proud in being twinned with Shrewsbury, I feel we should show our pride in a similar way and what better than a bridge.
