Advertiser Letters

Posted by davidburbage on November 8, 2007

Too many meetings today but reading the Maidenhead Advertiser’s letters page, I had to blog a bit.

Shanni Baum has a letter about recycling. I thought we were trying to make it easier to recycle, not make it harder. I will investigate.

Richard Falconer, Paul Etherington, CH Dozell and Brian Belcher all write about parking, variously in opposition or broadly supportive. However, those who are saying “town is dead” clearly didn’t read – (well OK they sent their letters in before the publication date) – let’s say that they didn’t factor in, either of the stories on page 3 or 7.

The Magnet Leisure Centre is the 3rd best in the country – and we are about to have a Laura Ashley fashion store arrive. That’s not a bad brace for one weeks’ news, is it?

The Council also gets praised for discreet yellow lines by another “Name and Address Supplied”. There are a few of those this week.

To summarise the Council is not ignorant of the challenges facing the town centre, and we are determined to do something about it. We may not have the power of Heroes that Richard Falconer refers to, but we are certainly not neglecting our responsibility ….
