He speaks for most of us

IN reply to Ms J I Mathews, who says that Mike Bell does not speak for all of us, I could possibly agree, but I think he speaks for most of us! Who remembers what a superb town Weston was? People used to come to visit from far and wide. Beautifully kept sands and lawns, and crowds of children and their parents in the swimming pool - thrilled because it even had the highest diving board in Europe, and a cafe for drinks and sandwiches. What else did we need? Just a simple roof we thought! We had the pretty Marine Lake; slipper baths, salt water baths, etc.; several theatres with really good shows, and four cinemas! Fantastic Weston-super-Mare!Remember all the lovely little shops? Milliners for gorgeous hats, beautiful shops for lingerie, and cobblers for shoe repairs - we had a shop for everything. But now, if someone doesn't stop them quickly, the whole of Weston will be called Tesco! They want everybody's business. They are taking away the chemists' trade, the clothes, the bakers' shops, garages. People queue there all day. Imagine if the council doesn't stop them now. There would be no lovely Weston left, only Tesco. Imagine all the people from all around us, from further down Weston to up to Bath and Bristol getting up on a Saturday morning and saying to each other: "Lovely sunny day today. Let's go down to Tesco for the day." NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
