This letter appears in today's Leicester Mercury:
Cathedral will be room for dossers
I have looked on the web site at the artist's impression of the cathedral gardens proposal, but cannot see any benches.
I do hope that the new gardens will include some benches so that people can sit and congregate and have a cigarette and a few cans of beer and bottles of cider, as they do at the moment inside the present cathedral entrance.
Perhaps the planners of Soulsby Square (oops, sorry, Freudian slip, I mean Jubilee Square) will note this requirement.
They can also save a little money, as no litter bins will be necessary as cans and bottles will be left on or near the seats for collection.
Cigarette ends can also be swept up from the surrounding area.
