Fountains bring disappointment and concern
LAST Friday evening I was entertaining a friend in a local restaurant and was telling her about the fountains being lit up.
Having finished our meal by 9.30pm we were ready to go and “admire” them but as it was still light I suggested we’ll have a coffee before setting off to the square.
We arrived there at 10.05pm and yes . . . no lights and no fountains!
It was a great embarrassment, especially after having read in The ET that they should be on from 7.30am to 10.30pm. These days when it is not dark till almost 10pm what is the good of having them all day and then off when it is just getting dark?
When I told my friend that this big wet patch cost millions she could not believe it.
Such a disappointment. the Cathedral Square is getting.
On Sunday as we walked across the square we witnessed an old man with a camera video capturing a very small girl in pink soaked through to the skin. We waited to see what this man was doing there as he moved the camera back and forth in case it was her grandad maybe?
After he finished filming her he calmly walked away on his own and studied his footage. If I thought the law was on my side I would have dealt with this myself, but the chances are I would have been arrested if I had approached him. This area to me is a feeding ground for predators and parents should be on their guard. ELAINE DOVE Mina Close, Stanground, Peterborough
