Town at­trac­tive and in­ter­est­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

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. Christina Tem­ple, Faver­sham Road, Ken­ning­ton.
