Really liked the poster that's gone up on Bermondsey Street
calling for an end to buildings being painted grey on the street..
Couldn't agree more. Moved here about 11 years ago and the street was awash with colour - now it's getting blander and blander by the day, especially with the disaster that is the new AL'S CAFE signage.
Maybe those TeamLondonBridge folks should go around and pay for shops to get their frontages repainted.. Not suggesting Bermondsey Street
is a shanty town obviously but i'd rather it had this vibe (which it used to have):
Anyway I hope some enterprising shopkeeper soon realises that they'll be far more noticeable and welcoming with a bit of colour rather than the corporate blandness that is taking over..
