… and still we wait

2 May

The promised fountains in Queen Victoria Square have yet to materialise. We are told by a Councillor that “The technology used to operate these features has not been used anywhere else,” and “So it that sense they’re unique. Issues around that technology are being addressed.”. Now as far as I know fountains have been around for thousands of years; how difficult can it be? You have water, you squirt it through a hole, repeat process until bored… These however are fancy fountains with bells and whistles, well coloured lights anyway as you can see in this article from a well known local newspaper. If I were a gambling man I’d put a small wager on these things working on and off for a season or two then being quietly forgotten and paved over.

…and also outside the Holy Trinity Coffee Bar the so-called mystical mirror pools are also still not in place (surprise, surprise) and guess what the reason is? “I can safely say nothing like this has ever been seen before in this country, if not Europe. I prefer to call them glazed paving. They are going to be mystical, magical and I hope quite special….” says the guy who sold these puppies to Hull City Council and “They are definitely the first of their kind in the UK and they’re here in Hull.” Yeah right, puddles with knobs on, can’t wait.

    Glazed paving. That's a first.
