“WONDERFUL Worthing with all its fine features” – a quote from Mrs Smith’s letter in the Herald.
All I can say is, Mrs Smith, you must be wearing rose-tinted glasses.
We have lost the boating lake, Peter Pan’s Playground, the paddling pool and tennis courts all along the esplanade.
The public conveniences are a disgrace, due to no longer having a resident attendant.
Shops are closing every week, due to high-cost parking, driving people away in droves.
Many historic buildings are being demolished, just to be turned into flats.
I, too, have lived in Worthing all of my 60-plus years.
The Half Brick (a landmark) is being turned into eight flats, with nine parking spaces.
If each flat is occupied by a couple, each running a car, where are the other seven cars going to park?
Teville Gate – what an eyesore. Will that ever be developed?
It’s an ideal site for a multiplex cinema, or ice rink, both of which would bring revenue into the town.
Rub the sleep from your eyes, Mrs Smith. This town is grim, fast turning into a ghost town, run by dinosaur councillors.
Mrs C. Price
