Something must be done

Two letters stood out in last week s Journal. One was about the amount of dog mess around. It seems really sad that the enjoyment of the majority should be spoiled by a few individuals who cannot be bothered to clean up after their dogs.

It seems really sad that the enjoyment of the majority should be spoiled by a few individuals who cannot be bothered to clean up after their dogs. These people are anti-social and should be held to account (not every dog owner, by the way).

The other point was the 10-year-old who noticed the town centre was 'shocking'. If a person as young as this can recognise the sorry state of the town, then clearly something must be done. I know that times are hard etc.

We need to promote the town as a viable and welcoming place for more retailers to open new stores, and not rely on Tesco opening another store where it is not needed or various 'pressure groups' trying to keep the 'big companies' out.
