I READ Jim Buckand’s letter regarding the Worthing Wurlitzer with a great deal of surprise.
Mr Buckland claims to have had no response from the leadership of Worthing Borough Council.
To the contrary, I can assure Herald readers that I have been in personal communication with Mr Buckland.
The nature of his most recent correspondence was to make legal challenges to the council.
In order that tax payers are protected, I referred these matters to my legal officers for response.
I fully understand that Mr Buckland has given a good deal of his life to the Wurlitzer.
I do hope whoever comes forward to run our theatres in the future will be speaking with him about a new contract.
However, we are in a very difficult financial position and need to make significant savings over the next two years to protect frontline services such as refuse collections and street sweeping.
