CLAIMS that Hyndburn neighbourhood police team will be halved and council claims shop security shutters would put off shoppers (October 19)
Ursula Vasey-Graham: I’d rather see shutters on the shop windows at night than windows smashed and goods stolen or shops damaged.
Christine Malpus: Does the council want businesses to flourish in the area or not? Shutters would only be down at night and most law abiding people wouldn’t mind this as they don’t roam the streets in the middle of the night looking in shop windows.
Kay Aspinall: We need to protect the shopkeepers that are here that are trying to make an honest living.
Thomas Heyes: If the council won’t let the shop owners have shutters then they should pay for the damage and repairs.
Clare McKenna: The amount of crime that’s happening in this town and they are halving the amount of police on the streets?
