Letter of the Week

THERE have not been many positive thoughts regarding the shopping perspective in Lowestoft, mostly negative.

People say they now shop in Beccles, Yarmouth or even Norwich, I think it's more in anger or frustration rather than necessity.

We sometimes shop in Beccles or Norwich, but doesn't everyone? Beccles has a charm of its own, that's why we sometimes shop there and Norwich has more choice mainly because of its size.

Lowestoft comes first it always has and always will.

An article in The Journal (January 18) illustrates what I have always said. Sue Patterson, of Chadd's, hit the nail on the head when she said: “We can't put Lowestoft down, we have to look forward.”

Well done Sue, my sentiments entirely.

All the road works are a necessity to keep the town's infrastructure up to standard. Lowestoft is now a modern town and we must respect it.

It was also said that we have a beautiful seafront, yes we have, as far as the Claremont Pier.

The Sunrise Scheme was an excellent job well done, but why did it stop at the Claremont?

The balustrade on the Esplanade from the pier to Kensington Road, which must be almost three quarters of a mile long, is in a deplorable state being patched up with odd bits of railing.

Lowestoft is a clean and tidy town and we should be proud of it, but there are still things to be done. Maybe the balustrade is on the agenda - I don't know, but we must think positive.
