Cllr Hetherton - thank you Jim here we are today looking at the testing of the fountains in the upper printing this is the public realm work that has been done it's making a complete difference to this area not only with the fountains but with the green uh planting that's gone on and you know the whole area is changing and I’m sure that people will love this as much as they do the fountains in the ball yard.

Cllr O’Boyle - Thank you, Pat. David tell us a little bit, about the art installations here in upper precinct today.

Cllr Welsh -  well this is a great example of how public realm meets local art as part of this installation we're going to have a poem by a local country poet that runs through the rails we'll come into this and then run through the rest of the precinct I’m really encouraged by the work I think it looks fantastic and I can't wait to see it finished
