Not since the High Road House awnings has an exterior provoked such strength of opinon as the new paint work on Heathfield Terrace.

Initially thought to be an undercoat, the green exterior, which undoubtedly makes a statement, sparked a forum debate on matters of taste, tawdriness and Tobermoray.

Meanwhile the debate continues on the forum.
