A visit to my local park

I suppose if I am writing a book and its the big book on bandstands I have to and should include my local park - Parson's Close Recreation Ground in lovely Leighton Buzzard which has a great programme of music every summer. I went down there today and did a VLOG I think they are called now. It was cold and do excuse the bad hair and clearly unshaven look. Its an important park to the people of da Buzzard and the bandstand is central to this award winning Green Flag park and i enjoy sitting on a Sunday afternoon listening to a band. Clearly it does feature in the book along with many bandstands across the country. Progress is good, final touches made and a few tweaks but all being well we will see it in the New Year. Thank you for your support.

On the webpage there is a person who said that in case he writes a book and it’s the big book then I have to add my local park. Parson's Close Recreation Ground in beautiful Leighton Buzzard which has a great music program every summer. It’s a significant park to the people of the Buzzard and it is essential to this award winning Green Flag park. Well! I have seen a lot of students are looking superior papers and they like to browse and visit different sites to select which one is affordable for them.
