The Guardian (April 18, p8) ran a story about the attempts of Slough BC to shed the town's negative image, most famously expressed in the John Betjeman poem containing the lines 'Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough/It isn't fit for humans now.'

The town wants to have a collection of local landmarks listed as important buildings.

'People who don't know it may think it has problems, but the people who live here know that's not true,' said council spokeswoman Tracie Cook.

'There are some very attractive buildings and this is the best way of

preserving them.'
