Moving travellers on seems like a case of deja vu? Letters.
OVER the years man has built many physical barriers to repel unwelcome invaders. The Great Wall of China, the Maginot Line in France and Hadrian's Wall are were all designed to keep out undesirables.
Locally we have our own defence barriers on Hearsall Common where trenches have been dug and mounds have been constructed to keep travellers at bay.
These barriers were all constructed by the council and aided by local hero, Councillor Phil Townshend, hence they can be named Townshend's Trenches in his honour.
However, the travellers had a cunning plan to thwart these defences. They executed a pincer movement, bypassed Townshend's Trenches, and approached the gates where they cut through the padlock and casually parked up like they do every year.
No doubt they will be a regular feature on the Common for the whole summer, only moving on with the change of the season at which point Coun Townshend will take the praise for repelling these invaders.
Is it just me is does this feel like a case of deja vu? Brain Nathan-Partridge, Mantilla Drive, Styvechale.
