  1. Those locks cost councils a fortune to remove. They are destroying property wherever they are. They are now banned on the Ponte Vecchio with fines being handed out to anyone caught putting them there.

    1. Thanks Jo. You are right, this is the only one I link to on a regular basis. I only take part in the other challenges if I have a post that is suitable ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Lisa.
      Haven’t had time to check on what you have been up to. Shall hop right over and remedy that ๐Ÿ™‚
