Last Saturday, Shropshire Council fixed signs around Ludlow town centre promoting Covid-19 social distancing. By Monday, some had been defaced and many had been removed. Others had been covered over with Covid-19 conspiracy messages. Guerrilla signage promoted the “Shropshire Corona Resilience Network” with the message “Fraud Pandemic”. I think we are all going a bit mad during lockdown. Nothing is madder than stealing scarecrows from Knowbury and planting them at random locations around the area, including The Buttercross. They were a children’s project. That’s where what might have seemed to be a good joke turns sour. [See comments below for a clarification.] There is considerable confusion over the Covid-19 signs which have banned parking on Events Square. The signs read: “No parking enforcement in operation”. They should have read “No parking. Enforcement in operation”. For want of a stop, a message was lost and parking fines were issued.
