I would like to respond to Mr Nigel Wilkinson, chairman of the Exmouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce, and his request for business partners to help run the ‘Green Glass Monstrosity’, (did everyone notice how he managed to avoided using the C-A-F-E word in last week’s appeals in the Journal and Herald).
Well, I think I have the perfect business plan for a partnership with him and the ECTC and it goes like this:
I approach small businesses, let’s say like cafes around The Strand, and tell them, for a fee, I will represent them in all aspects to do with local and county council matters and anything else.
I will stress that I will always have their best interests at heart and do everything in my power to see that they get the best representation possible...
Mr Wilkinson states the one thing we can all agree on is that Exmouth needs successful small businesses.
I think that there two other things that the majority of people in Exmouth would also agree on.
1 The way this whole sorry saga has been handled by the ECTC is a disgrace.
- 1 Bathing still banned at Exmouth due to pollution but restrictions lifted for Budleigh
- 2 A-level results day for students at Exmouth Community College
- 3 Passenger banned from sitting next to girls on the bus
- 4 Bathing banned at Exmouth and Budleigh due to pollution
- 5 Exmouth beach swimming ban lifted
- 6 CANCELLED - McFly's Exmouth concert called off
- 7 Exeter College bucks national trend with 'best ever A level results'
- 8 Donation from Freemasons to fire-damaged scout hut
- 9 'Step aside, Salcombe' - travel article names Exmouth as Devon's up-and-coming destination
2 Mr Wilkinson should resign.
