Lake Conan Doyle Named

Yesterday saw the "unofficial" naming of a lake in South Norwood Country Park.

The South Norwood Tourist Board held a naming ceremony yesterday. Alas it is unofficial and, as far as I can tell, carries no weight as such. It will not be referred to as Lake Conan Doyle on official paperwork etc as the local authority (Croydon Council) have not sanctioned it. Judging by the SNTB website, certain members of the local authority attempted to block the ceremony altogether by means that, in my opinion, lacked civility and bordered on nasty. That's just my opinion however and I recommend you read the SNTB's various postings to make up your own mind.
