The Village Green

Is this an icon?

or

The Village Green

Because it is something quintessentially English - where else in the world is there the same sort of landmark? It represents a meeting place (historically) for local people and even in modern times can make a valuable contribution in promoting a cohesive local community. What could be more attractive as a 'central' feature in any village?

It`s where we walk the dog.We meet folks. Kids play on the swings.Teens act big.We toboggan down the slope. The fair comes twice a year.The old dears from Beckside sit out in the summer (the carers have a fag)and it`s a short cut to the library. Everyone knows where it is.

This is a traditional feature of most small towns and villages
