I have been working in Church Street for 45 years , it has always been a pretty little backwater with an attractive landscaped area at the end of the street.

Last year a team of local council workers came along and stripped out all the mature shrubs , leaving bare soil which has subsequently become choked with weeds. The railings around the bed are rusting.

Wouldn't it be nice to get some civic pride back into this town!
