Frome bench slogan competition

"Park yourself here"....?

I'm sure you can improve on this and you'd love to see your inspired slogan carved beautifully onto one of two new solid oak benches that Frome Town Council has ordered for Rodden Meadow, the most lovely open green space near the town centre?

The council bought two new solid benches and I've agreed, as a donation, to carve a short slogan onto each one of them so they decided to make it a competition with the town mayor, Peter Macfadyen choosing the winners. No prize other than the pride of seeing your words in wood.

You are limited to 40 characters for your slogan - including spaces!
