Listen to the constituents

I TAKE my hat off to Cllr David J Evans, finally a councillor who listens to the people of this town and what they want, and not what the out-of-town councillors want for our town. Listen to the constituents for once. We need, we want, a swimming pool wit

I TAKE my hat off to Cllr David J Evans, finally a councillor who listens to the people of this town and what they want, and not what the out-of-town councillors want for our town.Listen to the constituents for once. We need, we want, a swimming pool with a roof, a fun pool, at the Tropicana. Currently Sedgemoor council are laughing at us and rubbing their hands together with glee at all the revenue they are collecting from residents of Weston who are travelling to Bridgwater to swim and have fun, and kids' birthday parties. Quite often you can't get in because it's just too busy.If Henry Boot is allowed to build a cinema and bowling alley, hotel and shops, etc., and a small pool, what will happen to the Odeon and AMF? The usual story. They will not be able to carry on and so we have two more derelict buildings, all thanks to our illustrious councillors from out-of-town who don't want these things, because that will mean we might get tourists back. You know, those people who brought revenue to the town once upon a time!MRS M JAMESMadeira Road, Weston
