Maybe you only pass through Memorial Gardens on your way between County Mall and Marks & Spencer, but if you can find a free bench, stop for a while and relax. I'm so glad this town centre garden has been preserved all these years and not fallen prey to developers. The planting is interesting and colourful - all credit to the Council's gardeners for keeping the place looking so good. In dry weather you'll see groups of students sprawled across the lawns, benches full of older folk enjoying the flowers, and families with youngsters packing the adjacent playground. Grab a sarnie from M&S and a takeaway brew from Coffee Republic and hey, you've got a picnic!
