March 31st’s Real Deals Story
From the newsletter:
“There is no longer any need to travel to Hollywood as we have our own replica of the famous sign right here in the UK. Sure, so the letters might only be five-feet high, and so what if they spell out BASILDON? We’re sure the effect is much the same!”
So, what’s the Real Deal?
You read it right, though at only five feet high the sign isn’t exactly on the same scale as Hollywood’s 45-foot high monumental landmark! Basildon Council has erected the large white letters along the side of the A127 at an estimated cost of £90,000 as part of an initiative to boost the local economy.
