Wall of promises

So this is a wall of promises we found in Newport, Wales. I’m not sure what the significance of the fish might be, but some of the promises are worth zooming in on.

Some are noble.

Some are impossible.

Some are baffling.

And some exhibit what could be called a God complex.

I don’t know. It just didn’t help that such lofty sentiments were cast alongside scenes like this.

They can’t control the tides I suppose...or perhaps one of them can?

I hate not being able to edit a comment when I've made a spelling mistake!

I've been trying to track down Christine Earl, Iv'e been trying to find out what Normansland Field of Memories is, and I've even tried to find the White Peak "Derbysire", then I read "Derybyshire" and wondered if Christine Earl is a real person, or whether Clive Jones took all her memories for his garden.

I'm not going to give in you know!

I'm thinking Julian David saw Glenys' sponsor-a-child promise and thought, "Oh YEAH?" and promptly one-upped her.

I'm also thinking these might be written by 11-year-olds. It is the age, after all, where you can control the tides.

Helen, I think you are close to the mark on both counts. For a number of reasons I suspect that all of these people connected with iTV .

I bet Jean Haddon is the weather girl.
