Up a wee bit more, but at least I managed to walk a bit further today. That was mostly because I had to take an after-lunch trip to the station to collect some tickets, mutter, mutter.

Today’s photo is a sign that I found a bit on the aggressive side. It’s plonked on the grass-covered lump that used to be the base of the distinctly unlovely Tyne Bridge Tower.

Communities, huh?

Communities, huh?

Now the whole kind of “keep out” thing wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the “Homes and Communities” label, which makes it sound like they should be well, a bit nicer. It’s also interesting that the URL on the sign is a .co.uk, suggesting a commercial entity, but the actual site[1] doesn’t have the friendly logo and looks like generic .gov.uk template B[2]. Probably waiting to be sold off….

[1] The website, not the site site
[2] Or C, or something
