LETTER: Bad impression for our visitors

So many letters refer to the low standard of the cleaning up of rubbish in the town centre. My husband and I are OAPs and we both feel unhappy about the lack of care, or thought mostly, but not all the blame lies with the council.

I have also drawn attention to my thoughts not just through letters to your pages, but to the council direct.

My first complaint by phone was about the state of the door windows on the lower prom part of the Bandstand. With the money since being spent, no difference!

The next was a letter regarding the very dirty state of the town centre. I fear nothing has improved. However, part of me now thinks why should the council bother, when the local people cannot or will not clean up their own dog mess on the footpaths or even keep their own space tidy.

The reason for my pen to paper this time is the seafront. While walking on the prom from my home to the pier, both last weekend and this, every single rubbish bin was full to overflowing.

Just what do the visitors think? What a shame.
