Letter: Ever hopeful; Letters to the EDITOR.

Byline: Richard B Nicholson

THE proposed redevelopment of New Brighton made me write the following:

New Brighton in its post war heyday, the tower, outdoor fairground, the ferry landing stage, the pier, the Art Deco bathing pool, the arcades, the cafAs and shops in Victoria Road creaking at the seams from the thronging crowds, and all those eccentric relatives who made my childhood so memorable. To have kept some of that would not have been difficult.

After years of neglect, what is left of New Brighton, no pier, no tower, no landing stage, no cafAs, no shops, no fairground, no baths, just a cardboard cutout of a clown on Kings Parade, a tribute to the clowns who once ran Wallasey Council. Maybe the present elected members may have better ideas, hope springs eternal.
