Cash on chairs well spent

REGARDING your article in last week’s Budleigh Journal about the complaint that the town council is spending taxpayers’ money on chairs for the Public Hall.

I have a lot of time for Roger Bowen; he organises a good festival. This time, however, he is totally out of order and out of touch. He should clearly use the hall more and do a bit of physical work moving the chairs about and perhaps sit on them for longer.

I, and a huge number of others, totally support the purchase of new chairs and the fact that we can also support local industry is brilliant.

Well done the mayor, Councillor Tom Wright, for defending the decision!

Jeremy Browne,
