If Stevenage were to have a crest…

Just stick it... there.

Just stick it... there.

Yesterday, we were out ‘en famille’ looking for a clip-on beard for my son (he wants to dress up at Captain Haddock for some fancy dress thing at school) and I came across this very creative form of parking. It struck me as a perfect expression of Stevenage in microcosm: fountains with swimming pool tiles, Primark and the pièce de résistance, the Tesco trolley. Kent can keep its 100-metre horse!

Apologies for cropping off the name of the person ‘responsible for planning and building the New Town of Stevenage’. I’m sure a 5-minute scan of Wikipedia will tell you who to thank.

No luck with the beard.

This is what we were looking for:

Captain Haddock's beard. Unavailable in Stevenage on a Sunday.
