Hey, it can't be so bad if you live here

PUBLISHED: 10:13 05 March 2010 | UPDATED: 16:36 06 July 2010

I AM writing in reply to David Batley's letter (Postbox, February 26).

I think it was an unfair attack on Lowestoft.

If it's so bad, why does he live in Pakefield, Lowestoft?

I like nothing better than walking all the way from Pakefield along the beach, past the little beach huts and along the promenade on a lovely sunny day with the sea sparkling and the award winning beach.

The Pavilion is an amazing design and a prominent landmark and seeing my grandchildren having fun in the fountains in front of it is the best.

A walk along the pier, past the yacht marina and on to the harbour mouth is also not to be missed.

Southwold has, by comparison, a very attractive pier with expensive food outlets, overpriced beach huts and a beach which is not award winning and quite dangerous in parts with the high drop from the prom.

Don't get me wrong, I do like Southwold.

It's a very pleasant place to visit but please do not slate Lowestoft seafront.

It's an ideal place for families.
