1986 BOTANIC AREA-4

 We are agreed that our area of Belfast
 is a good place to live.Apart from the
 weather,which most agree could be     
 warmer,there is a lot to do.Cinemas,  
 shops,leisure centres,parks,museums,  
 etc.are all close to hand.Private cars
 and public transport can quickly get  
 us to the seaside or countryside.     
  In each season there is always       
 something to look forward to-the      
 Christmas lights and special toy      
 displays;the Lord Mayor's Show with   
 its colourful floats;spectulars,      
 gymkhanas,fire work displays all in   
 Botanic Gardens;international football
 and athletics.                        
  We strongly dislike the vandalism    
 which is going on these days and wish 
 something could be done about it.     
 Perhaps more jobs, especially for     
 teenagers might help.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
