YOUR SHOUT... On the Cathe­dral Square foun­tains

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News Breif -

PAULINE Steel (42), from Fair­field Road, Flet­ton, had mixed feel­ings about the foun­tains.

She said: “i think they are lovely for chil­dren. as soon as my three saw them, they were mes­merised. They also keep the pi­geons away.

“But i would have liked a me­mo­rial here and old-fash­ioned foun­tains. if it at­tracts peo­ple, though, it’s more money in the shops’ pock­ets.”

Ron­ald Jones (82), from Farcet, was not won over. He said: “it’s a waste of money. Be­fore, you had the flow­ers and peo­ple sit­ting round, but now you sit in a big cir­cle and you are not near any­body.

“They are just copy­ing other places like Bourne. if there’s any wind, there could be prob­lems.”

Ja­nine Webster (49) and her daugh­ter Florence (18) were vis­it­ing from Gran­tham and were sur­prised to see the wa­ter jets. Ja­nine said: “They will be very nice on a hot day and look quite mod­ern. lit­tle kids seem to like them, but i’ve al­ready seen one boy get com­pletely soaked. it’s a nov­elty.” Florence said: “it’s a nice fea­ture for the sum­mer.”

Sukhjit Singh (57), from alexan­der Road, new Eng­land, said it was time the square had a re­vamp. He said: “it will be nice in the sum­mer time and is good to have some­thing to watch.”
