Do the Shade Sails Work?
Max and Matt, both 15, reckon they do.
Max: ‘They’re good. We came over here to get out of the sun.’
Matt: ‘They need some seats though.’
Margaret (68) and Geraldine (56) agreed.
They had finished their shopping and said they’d had enough.
This was the only shaded spot within a block of their bus stop and they had an hour to wait to return to Launceston.
Margaret: ‘They’re a good idea. It’s lovely here, sitting in the shade, with the breeze. A bit of seating would be good though, instead of parking our butts on the concrete.’
Geraldine: ‘You can’t say butts. Posteriors.’
TT didn’t ask what anyone thought of the shades’ appearance.
On a hot day all eyes were down, seeking shade.
