“Terrible” shop shutters along the main route through Darwen are making the town look derelict, according to town councillor John East.
He suggests that one way to brighten things up a bit would be to paint the shutters, improving shop exteriors and says the town council should be coming up with ideas to give Darwen a better appearance.
The development committee of Darwen Town Council is now looking into the possibility of a carrying out the painting scheme.
What are your thoughts on schemes like this? What would you like to be done to improve the towns appearance?
