How nice of Ms Lee to consider asking the people of Budleigh Salterton to help her collect pebbles for her "sculpture" designed to depict the special things about Budleigh Salterton. Perhaps she'd like to ask us if we want it first.Budleigh already has natural beauty and we know it is a special place - that's why we live here. Surely we do not have to have a 15ft man-made monstrosity on a beach where the pebbles look beautiful in their natural, horizontal, ever-changing tidal landscape. Raise £80,000 if you will, but put it towards rebuilding the lives of recent victims of the floods or more health care facilities at Budleigh Hospital, rather than giving us an eyesore in the middle of our Jurassic Coastal Heritage Site.Why are we even entertaining people who are intent on defacing our amazing special place.Jennifer Roberts,Resident of Budleigh Salterton.PS If this does go ahead, it may just need cleaning more than twice a year.
