There’s lots of things to be proud of about the way Manchester has changed in the last twenty years. 

The Northern Quarter, Spinningfields and First Street have all been transformed into places we can be proud of. 

But there’s one place that definitely hasn’t changed for the better. Piccadilly Gardens.  

It’s one of the first places visitors to Manchester see. And it’s a disgrace. It’s been transformed from a swan into an ugly duckling. The concrete. The litter. The fountains that don’t work. The wall. It’s probably the most hated place in Manchester.  

People have been moaning about it for ages – us included.

Finally, someone is trying to do something about it. 

So three cheers for the Manchester Evening News. They’ve launched an online petition to restore Piccadilly Gardens to its former glory. And we love it. 

Just 4,000 signatures are needed to force the council to debate the issue and more than 9,000 people have put their name to it already. 

The petition will stay open for 90 days, so do sign it if you haven’t already and let’s get rid of this eyesore.
