WHAT a disappointment it was to read the letter on September 27 'I wish I had never come here'. A very tunnel view on Weston.The only thing I agreed with was about the congestion in the town centre, which could easily be solved by a park and ride system, but as everywhere these things take time!I have lived in Weston now for two years - it is the best move I have made. I drive past the seafront and I have never seen people with dogs out of season on it. Perhaps I do not look hard enough. In the summer I see happy children playing in the sand or taking donkey rides. In the winter I see the great views to Brean Down, Steep Holm and Flat Holm and watch the most amazing sunsets. As for the town streets I find them no dirtier than any other town. I also have not seen many signs of vandalism, but vandalism in this day and age is nationwide. In the time I have lived here, I have met only what could be said as the nicest bunch of people I have met, and I have a wide circle of sincere friends that I have not had since my teenage years.Through circumstances beyond my control, I lived in Burnham-on-Sea for 22 years and I can only say they were the most unhappy years of my life.I suggest the writer of last week's letter goes and live there for a month and he or she would be scuttling for the fastest 21A bus back to dear old Weston and look at all the good things it has to offer, instead of dog watching.PAULEEN MARCIA KNELL - Uphill
