I SPENT a most enjoyable holiday and several day trips here before deciding to move to Weston a short time ago and I can honestly say (although I have no first hand experience of the night clubs here) I have never seen anyone even tipsy day or night on the streets here, or had to leave a pub because of noise or it being unruly. How anyone in their wildest dreams sees it as a ghost town when shops, streets, and sea front are teaming with people seven days a week is totally beyond me?There are shops to cater for all tastes and budgets here and parks thrown in for good measure. Binge drinkers where I moved from openly in broad daylight vomited on the pavements, urinated in any convenient doorway if they couldn't make it to an alley and discarded wrappers from whatever they were eating as they walked. Where was this? Glorious Devon.G N FLETCHER - Baker Street, Weston
