Regarding Lancing Parish Council’s finance committee discussing Headborough Gardens and money spent to bring Queen’s Parade and South Street a new look (Lancing Herald, January 23), I suggested Headborough Gardens – neglected for years, except for mowing – also needed a facelift.

After lengthy discussions, the committee decided a decision made by the full council was needed, which did agree.

I am afraid if any vanity is in place, it is mine.

Having been a parish councillor for Lancing and Sompting for 16-and-a-half years, just part of the charm of villages were green spaces and the beach.

If this garden was not to be updated, would it be turned into a car park?
