Bothered to ask local people

RICHARD Nightingale will have my full backing for a new plan for the Tropicana.

RICHARD Nightingale will have my full backing for a new plan for the Tropicana.

A local man who has bothered to ask local people what they want seems a novel idea in Weston and local councillors should take note of this point in future.

Keep the whole idea attractive, all weather, not too complicated with affordable entry prices so people both local and holidaymakers can afford to visit time after time and not just once, and make it an all year round attraction, these points should make it a real winner for our town and also the 'low level' idea is a good one.

Many people I spoke to were put off by the last plans as the proposed building was too high and would look out of place on the seafront and cost a fortune to build and too expensive to visit.

A visit to The Sun Centre at Rhyl would give a good idea of what can be done on

a site of about the same size. I was in the Rhyl Sun Centre in January a few years ago when my two children were young and could not believe how busy it was on a weekday and it was snowing outside.

If we can stop the local councillors getting too grand, unobtainable and unaffordable ideas on this project Weston will have a real gem on its hands.

Let's go for it, this valuable asset has been out of use for too long. Let's have a project fulfilled that other seaside resorts will copy.

I have no connection in any way with Richard Nightingale except I like his very neat,

bright yellow vans. Let's hope his plans will brighten up Weston as well.
