Good to see Jesse’s back!

He’s back

I drive down University Boulevard regularly during term time as my son goes to school in Beeston, so I was aware of the damage to Jesse Boots statue at the gates to the University Park the day it happened.

The memorial to Sir Jesse Boot was pushed over when David Cameron visited the
city’s Boots factory last month when the announcement of the Enterprise Zone was announced. Apparently political leaflets were found nearby – although I am not sure the perpetrators could actually read!

The other day as I drove past again I saw that his bust is back in place, cleaned and impressive. It’s good to see him back, he is one of Nottingham greatest men and did not deserve the attentions of some brainless vandals.

Welcome back Jesse!
