Time to invest in tidying up the town

MADAM - Now that Sidmouth has bowed out of Britain in Bloom, for this year anyway, and that someone has tried to kick in the doors of the now empty Woolworths store, shouldn t the council think about spending a little less money on plants and peat and spending a little more on keeping the streets clean

MADAM - Now that Sidmouth has bowed out of Britain in Bloom, for this year anyway, and that someone has tried to kick in the doors of the now empty Woolworths store, shouldn't the council think about spending a little less money on plants and peat and spending a little more on keeping the streets clean and helping to fill these huge empty properties?

With the long closed SES building looking all but derelict opposite the closed Woolworths store, the high street is not looking good. The vast amount of plants and peat, which just get thrown away afterall, when they're not being strewn all over the street by yobs, is not environmentally friendly and should be sidelined in favour of sprucing up the town a bit.
