Handout should not be expected

MADAM - Why is Sidmouth Town Council considering financial assistance for the Sidmouth Herald to enable it to retain a base in the town (report February 6). The Herald is not a non profit making voluntary organisation requesting help from public funds. It is part of the successful and profitable Archant group, well able to stand on its own feet. If a Sidmouth presence is important to The Herald it should pay the proper rent and business rates for premises, the same as any other commercial company. It should not expect a hand out from council tax payers.
