Ladybird and Litter
Loughborough was the home of Ladybird Books, now sadly demised. Brightly illustrated slim hardbacks at a price designed to encourage children to read.
Charnwood Borough Council have had two seats installed in the marketplace which have been painted with scenes from the books. They make a welcome contrast to the bags of litter piled up from Bric a Brac market day on a dull Friday.
