There can’t be many more quintessentially British lyrics than John Lennon’s line from the delightfully nonsensical Beatles number I Am the Walrus – “Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.” Martin Weyl, on the other hand, is desperate for us to be protected from the merciless Middle Eastern sun.

Weyl is not just sitting around moaning about the lack of shade in public places all over the country; he has been researching the topic for some time now. The 74-year-old Dutch-born former Israel Museum director and head of the Beracha Foundation has invested a lot of footwork and elbow grease in what he considers to be a very pressing matter for some years now.
