Citizen editor: The Citizen applauds the cash being ploughed into sprucing up Gloucester
LOOK closely on the lapels of many in Gloucester and there is often a little badge featuring three letters BIG. This stands for Believe in Gloucester.
A strong message aimed at promoting what this city has to offer and the cash announced by the city council to spruce up our environment is hugely welcome if we are to put ourselves on the map.
When visitors, and indeed those who live here, come into the city centre we want good car parks and vibrant attractions.
We have the history and the waterfront and we certainly have the personality as a city to offer a great deal to residents and tourists, but there is some work to be done to provide the polish to really make the city shine. It is great to see the council acknowledge this and plough real money into making a difference.

COMING to school as Harry Potter or Batman might be every child's dream, but there is also a serious message behind dressing up for World Book Day.
One surefire way to get youngsters into learning is to make it about superheroes and the characters they know and love on screen or from their bedtime stories.
Encouraging children to love reading is not just about vital literary skills but also about firing their imaginations.
CHANGING food packaging is unlikely to make someone slim overnight and the same must be said for cigarettes.
If someone is in need of a fag, they won't care how they buy them whether it comes in a brown box or a packet with bells and whistles.
Clamping down on flashy packaging is not the answer. We should be spending our energy on the health message against smoking. This is powerful enough.
