Matthew Cunnington: Where’s all the charity shops? ●● New town centre plan revealed (website and last week’s paper) Chris O’Neill: I have heard ideas that whatever ends up in town (if it does... and more likely on Water Street than Duke Street...), will NOT include the cinema as part of it.. it will be an amalgamation of the other parts. So, a new multistorey car park, shops, some accommodation (maybe a new hotel?) and restaurants. Elisabeth Hobbes: I accompanied my son on a school visit to the library yesterday and one of the old documents that fascinated him was a plan for the centre from the 1940s. That didn’t get built either but it was interesting to see what they thought we’d want. Phil Miller: We moved here in 1980 and were excited at the new town centre plans. Don’t hold your breath folks. They couldn’t make decision to save their lives. And a cinema – in your dreams. ●● Fresh fight for Hollins View as council set to vote to stop the service (website and Express June 24) Jean Bennett: I would just like to say thank you for making Hollins View one of your items on the front page. Good to know you’re behind us again to stop the closure.
