Pat Graham and her team are to be congratulated on their achievements in providing Exmouth with such beautiful floral displays. Each year they seem to get better and better.What a shame, therefore, that for year after year the old swimming pool site remains such an eyesore, nullifying their sterling work in that section of the seafront. As I write, there has been no activity on the site for two months. Unsightly fencing dangerously narrows the footpath opposite The Harbour View Cafe - a particularly busy section of the seafront - and the part of the Madeira Walk closed in February and due to be opened by September 31 (sic) remains barricaded.While I welcome the delay in the constuction of what would have been an absolute monstrosity, this shambles should not be allowed to continue indefinitely. May I now make a plea for the site to be levelled and turfed and the fencing removed until a more appropriate development can be agreed.Malcolm Elliott,9 Lion House, Exmouth.
