Let Weston live up to its motto

I WAS interested to read last week's letter from the former councillor John Crockford-Hawley and agree with his suggestion about a future for the museum in Weston with the town council.

Over recent years other parishes, towns and villages, in the North Somerset area have raised local council tax much higher than the current Weston parish rate and provided local amenities which the North Somerset Council was unable to provide for its residents.

In an ideal world I would like to see the town council take a very long lease of the Tropicana, set up a trust with some finance from people of goodwill who wish to see a swimming pool.

Perhaps a trust could get donations - say �10 - from well-wishers and larger sums in the form of shares in the enterprise - it's likely the monetary dividends would not be paid - only the satisfaction of creating a much needed amenity on the seafront.

This could be done speedily by following the example of the owners of the Grand Pier who have used determination to overcome obstructions.

Is there enough ingenuity in Weston to quickly solve the problems of the Tropicana and to save the museum in its present handsome building?
