How I agree with V Harvey's letter last week outlining the decline of poor Weston.Born and bred in Weston, I remember using all those lovely facilities that he/she mentions. The Pool, as it was known then, was the central attraction. Oh the excitement of trying to find the courage to jump off the next highest diving board! I recall the queues to get in stretched all the way down the promenade. Adults and children alike were amused there from dawn until dusk. I shed a tear every time I visit relatives now - what a sorry looking town. The best solution I can think of is to let the Brenners take over the whole lot! The Grand Pier has hardly changed since those early days - except of course for good upkeeping and smart licks of paint every year. And residents and tourists alike, young and old, love it. It would also cost a great deal less than all the ridiculous ideas being put forward. ANN BAXTER - Nailsea
