What a pity it is that, when Budleigh Salterton is asked to comment on an exciting and beautiful proposal for a fountain in the town, all it can produce is a few ill-informed and negative letters.Anyone who has seen the fountain in the gardens outside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre will know Budleigh is fortunate to be offered another.I have sat by the fountain in Stratford and watched people of all ages and nationalities stop and admire it, many taking photographs to retain a memory of their visit to Stratford.The three or four letters in your pages, one from someone who does not even have the courage to support their opinion with their name, will probably now destroy the project.To misquote the ending of a famous poem on a similar theme by G K Chesterton, "Oh God! Oh Budleigh!"Philip Greenhow BA,Mill House, 26 The Green, Otterton.
