Amus­ing saga about a triv­ial mat­ter

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

WE have fol­lowed the var­i­ous let­ters re­gard­ing the com­plaint about a pot­hole in Sha­dox­hurst. Af­ter read­ing Carol Edg­ing­ton’s let­ter (March 15) we are re­as­sured that com­edy is still alive and well in Sha­dox­hurst. To rant at poor Mr Marsh who, like all the other let­ter writ­ers was merely point­ing out the triv­i­al­ity of Mrs Hutch­ings’ griev­ance and re­ac­tions, is most un­fair. Per­haps both ladies should fo­cus on some­thing more im­por­tant in the fu­ture, even though the pot­hole saga has been most amus­ing to many read­ers of your ex­cel­lent pa­per, in­clud­ing our­selves and friends.

I WAS as­ton­ished and dis­mayed to read Carol Edg­ing­ton’s at­tack on Mr Marsh and other peo­ple who wrote in about Lor­raine Hutch­ings’ com­plaint about the pot­hole in her road. What is all too ob­vi­ous from her protest, is that she has no un­der­stand­ing about what in­censed peo­ple enough to write to your news­pa­per about Mrs Hutch­ings’ gripe. It was the fact that she com­plained about ONE pot hole – a pot hole which ap­peared to af­fect her and her part­ner, and no­body else! Had she writ­ten to com­plain about the state of the roads in gen­eral and even her pot hole in par­tic­u­lar it would have been a quite valid com­plaint, con­sid­er­ing the state of some of Ash­ford’s roads.
