Natural beauty's blemishes.

Byline: MRS DOROTHY FALCONER

I AGREE with Mrs Olga Milner (Town A Sad Sight, 02.01.09) regarding the demise of Redcar. As a resident born and bred, I have seen a pier, three cinemas, two dance halls, swimming baths, ice skating rink and several hotels close down.

The High Street, as she mentioned, is a disgrace and there are numerous longstanding derelict sites which need to be developed, for example the bus station, two former petrol stations and the previous St David's nursing home on Redcar Lane, now approaching its third year as a building site.

The visitor to Redcar's main railway station is met with overgrown sidings and litter. If it wasn't for volunteer groups like Friends of the Parks and Cemeteries and the Flower Ladies, we would have no decent areas.

Come on, councillors, revive the town and complement the natural beauty of the beach and Stray areas in 2009.

MRS DOROTHY FALCONER, Redcar
