    Beware Hungry Elephants!

    by aaaarrgh Written Mar 7, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is an old joke which goes:

    Q - How can you tell if an elephant has been in your fridge?
    A - Footprints in the butter

    Bear this in mind when you walk up Cheltenham's main shopping drag. Along the wall of a side alley is a selection of mosaics telling the true story of local rampaging elephants!! In March 1934 Cheltenham was visited by Chapman's Zoo-Circus. Three elephants were being led along the street when they broke free and entered a local shop, much to the surprise of the shopkeeper and the townsfolk. Being hungry with large stomachs to fill, the elephants helped themselves to a sack of seed potatoes before they left!

    There are some nice illustrations on the wall to help you identify (a) a hungry elephant (b) horrified Cheltonians :)

    Location: Alley close to the main entrance to Beechwood Shopping Centre

    English Weather.. beware

    by top_vapour Updated Jan 3, 2007

    England is world renowned for its... "unpredictable" weather, especially during the winter. There are some places where you can get away from the rain and wind in the town centre, however, like many other towns and cities the high street is open to the bad weather.

    I would reccomend that you take an umbrella with you at all times during the winter (it only has to be a small one!) and also keep watch on the forecasts.

    Don't let the weather dampen your holiday spirits!
