Lack of benches around the town

MADAM - I recently took a holiday in the delightful town of Sidmouth with an elderly relative aged 82. We really had a nice time, but were unable to browse around the shops due to the lack of benches around the town centre. I know it is difficult to site

MADAM - I recently took a holiday in the delightful town of Sidmouth with an elderly relative aged 82. We really had a nice time, but were unable to browse around the shops due to the lack of benches around the town centre.

I know it is difficult to site benches in town centres, but it is a must for our aging population as they grow unsteady on their feet or need to rest just a while.

I am sure you could do something about this to accommodate the elderly in your beautiful town.
