I SYMPATHISE with Chris Kimitri, owner of the Nook & Harbour in Knightstone Road when he says his seafront bar and restaurant could be shut down and turned into flats, because there is more money in renting out flats than trying to sell food and drink.There are not enough attractions in Weston to bring in holidaymakers.By far the most popular attraction is the Grand Pier. Birnbeck Pier is just waiting to fall into the sea, and the Tropicana is still boarded up.Weston will go to the dogs unless the council starts investing more in tourist attractions instead of wasting tax-payers money on such things as the Customer Access Programme which will cost £4million and which we can do without.D F COURTNEY - Victoria Park, Weston
