Call me an old cynic if you like but when a construction firm donates a 'sculpture' to the council I smell that old rotten haddock odour gently wafting through the corridors of power. To avoid litigaton I will draw no conclusions from the coincidence of the erection of this thing and the construction in 1984 of the new Freetown Way alongside. I know not who made this but it does make an excellent ramp for skateboarders. It has the name 'Orb'; I suppose 'Backhander' was too hard to spell.
