Tribute to Toad Hall

Share this article

I HAVE been following with great interest the ongoing story as to why Toad Hall Garage on Chichester Road in North Bersted, acquired such a charming name.

Although the garage no longer carries the title, what better way of preserving this local ‘folklore’ for posterity, than officially naming the new roundabout under construction just a few yards away, Toad Hall Roundabout!

It is quite common for roundabouts to have names these days to assist motorists, and I can’t think of a better title.

Perhaps the developers or some other philanthropic body might then even consider a piece of artwork in its centre to make it a real gateway feature to the area?

A stainless steel silhouette of Toad would be grand, or if funds permitted, perhaps Toad in one of his splendid motor cars?

Toot! Toot!
