I and many more like me will be glad to get rid of that awful red colour in George Square. I do not know anyone who likes it. Everyone considers it an eyesore, and agree that the Councillor who Authorised this piece of vandalism should be shot.
It used to be lovely in the summer with the grass, flowers & statues. The people who worked in the area (I was one of them) spent their lunch hour sitting on the grass or benches eating their lunch and always left the Square clean & tidy. Weather permitting it was always packed, and people passing through would sit for a while, but not now.
There are no benches or grass now and the only time it looks nice is during the Christmas Season with the lovely Crib, Christmas Lights, Ice Rink, Helter Skelter and the other seasonal attractions.
Does anyone remember the Rabbie Burns Statue and the rhyme the children used to sing:
Rabbie Burns was born in Ayr
Noo he's doon in Georges Square
If ye want tae see him there
Take a caur and pay your fare.
