I READ with interest the articles in last week’s edition of the Mercury which showed how Weston frontline services had missed out on £55million of Government ie taxpayers’, money and revealing another huge shortfall in police funding for the region.
I KNOW that we, the local ratepayers, are supposed to have some say in how the town develops (who can believe that is true anymore?) but how can our lords and masters on North Somerset Council (NSC) suddenly spring on us a plan to move a significant Weston College development onto the area immediately behind the Winter Gardens?
MY HUSBAND was lucky enough to win two tickets to see Charlie Landsborough at the Playhouse Theatre, the performance was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. I would like to say a big thank you to the Weston Mercury and The Playhouse for giving such excellent prizes for the competitions.
I AM writing to you regarding the councils plan to re vamp the Winter Gardens. We all know what this council is like, after all look at the Tropicana, it took them 14 years to sort it out. Are the Winter Gardens going to be pulled down like Dolphin Square and we all know what happened to that? Nothing. If they pull down the Winter Gardens how long will it be before they rebuild it, five maybe ten years?
