Bringing People Together
By the letters in the R&T Times, I see 'the children' are still playing the game 'Our ideas are better than yours'. I for one am so pleased that the Lib Dem proposal to build flats on the Riverside has been scrapped. I don't care if it is derelict for another 20 years, in my view, anything is better than flats and concrete. Once the Council has the money to develop the site, it might be in years to come, at least our children will get to enjoy the riverside, rather than a few wealthy flat owners. Recently I mentioned the Richmond Ice Rink. Do the Lib Dems really want to cover all the Riverside land with concrete? They put it to the vote and we all know the result. I would draw the attention of our new Councillers to something I think has escaped them. Your bosses in the Palace of Westminister have all become 'Chums' with the Conservatives. Instead of arguing about the past, why not get your heads together and put Twickenham back on the map with a fantastic riverside square. This could be used for the Farmers Market (instead of taking up the car park at it's busiest time), Regattas, a childrens play area and any number of other functions. I see only one small problem,the big trees. I love trees but these are the wrong trees, they cast the whole site in shadow and shade the sunlight. Now Councillors 'Get your finger out', let us see if you can stop scoring party points, stop being so negative and give the people, who put you there something you and they can be proud of. Regards. Bryan.
