Beatles' Strawberry Fields gates removed
The ornate iron gates of a children's home which inspired John Lennon's psychedelic Beatles anthem Strawberry Fields Forever have been removed.The Salvation Army, which owns the former home, is putting the red Victorian gates into storage.It means Beatles fans who pass the Woolton site on bus tours will now be met with 10ft (3m) high replicas.
I saw someone posted on the Beatles Universe Facebook page.That Writer and Promoter Sam Leach is asking for all Beatles fans to prevent this sale.Maybe someone will start a petition drive etc and with enough opposition.A sale won't happen.I don't want those gates sold. They need to be preserved and at least put in some sort of museum or somewhere and kept safe and secure for history and future generationshttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-13344102
