Residents should decide future of Corton
IN reply to Mr A. P Long's letter in the Lowestoft Journal dated Friday August 14, we feel that the future of the expansion of our village school in Corton is a matter for the residents of the village to discuss and not outsiders like yourself to get involved with.
IN reply to Mr A. P Long's letter in the Lowestoft Journal dated Friday August 14, we feel that the future of the expansion of our village school in Corton is a matter for the residents of the village to discuss and not outsiders like yourself to get involved with. Yes, there is plenty of space on the playing field for the children to play, but are you aware that you have to have one teacher for every eight children that walk to the field?
And with such a large playing field that we are very fortunate to have, it is an ideal place for a bowling green, even though - like yourself - many of the bowlers do not live in Corton.
In closing, I have also been told that many villagers are totally for the sale of the village hall and bowling green, and I am sure that the Colman family would have been more than pleased to know the hall and green were being used as an extension to our excellent school, and that village organisations will still be able to use both facilities out of school hours.
