Newly christened Max Miller Walk already suffering from neglect and vandalism

The Argus: The Max Miller Walk The Max Miller Walk

A commemorative walk named in memory of a pioneering British comedian is suffering from neglect and vandalism.

Max Miller Walk, named for stand up comedian Thomas Henry Sargent, better known by his stage name, Max Miller, was unveiled last year in a special ceremony to mark the 50th anniversary of his death.

The walk, which runs alongside Marine Parade, has now fallen into disrepair and has been marked by graffiti artists.

Max Miller was a Brighton native, being born in Kemp Town in 1894, and was a star of stage, songs and the early screen.

On May 6 last year, the Mayor and Mayoress of Brighton and Hove and television presenter Michael Aspel OBE revealed the street sign in memory of The Cheeky Chappie.

How did they manage to get the edifice into a church font if in fact it was 'christened'? Why not use 'named' in the heading as well as the body?

What a totally rubbish story, that area has been a total dump for many years! Dirty concrete, weeds, graffiti, but of course The Argus has to big it up on another no news day.

I just wish they would get out and about and do proper investigative journalism like the Argus of 20 years ago used to, when the newspaper was actually read by people!
