Town attractive and interesting
I CAN’T believe what a miserable town I live in! The whining on your letters page last week was astounding. I can see why people may find the idea of spending £7,000 on a street light difficult, but it’s not as if this money would be spent on anything else – presumably it was budgeted for this specific purpose well before the economic downturn. And guess what? We end up with a much more attractive and interesting town centre that we should be proud of. If Mr Prangnell, for example, wants to see “slender, straight and elegant posts” he can go to any other area in Ashford (try Stanhope, or my own road) to appreciate them.
