One of Olney's Famous Landmarks has been changed into a New Botanical Gardens for the town.
The site, halfway up Long Lane, is already sprouting a new species of plant that feeds off rubber tyres and can 'digest', according to scientists, diesel and petrol, with very little need for water.
Highly flammable, it is wise to stay a reasonable distance away and not to make any loud noises in it's presence. Flowering is expected in late September, a member of the Olney Horticultural Society claimed.
Good news, possibly, for those that want a swimming pool in Olney....
We have the first pictures of what we believe to be Olney's next new Swimming Pool.
Yes, today we have received the picture below showing what must surely the answer to all our prayers..... A Swimming Pool for Olney.
We know we brought you a picture of one that was once on the High Street a few years back; but that didn't last long and was taken away by Milton Keynes Council. (See picture below).
Let's hope the council don't fill in our new pool before we can use it!
