Uxbridge should re­main open

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

I READ the let­ter “Clo­sure threat is wor­ry­ing” (Gazette, Oc­to­ber 24) by Mar­garet Whel­lams, who is very con­cerned that Uxbridge police sta­tion is threat­ened with clo­sure.

As she points out, it is mod­ern and fit for pur­pose, whereas Hayes End police sta­tion which is pro­posed as the cen­tral sta­tion, will need money spent on it.

As there may only be one police sta­tion left open it should be Uxbridge police sta­tion.

This is be­cause Uxbridge is easy to reach, be­ing about three min­utes’ walk from Uxbridge tube sta­tion. Uxbridge is the main hub of Hilling­don bor­ough. Many peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly the el­derly & women, may be ner­vous of trav­el­ling by bus at night to reach Hayes End police sta­tion to re­port a crime. Hayes End doesn’t have a tube sta­tion. I wish the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, or who­ever is de­cid­ing this, would make the log­i­cal de­ci­sion. Name and ad­dress with­held
