Town is proud of its youngsters
MADAM - How refreshing it was to read the letter in the Herald under the heading Thank you to lovely Sidmouth and in particular the very polite youngsters and their initiative to create a meeting place on the Esplanade to socialise.
MADAM - How refreshing it was to read the letter in the Herald under the heading "Thank you to lovely Sidmouth" and in particular the "very polite youngsters" and their initiative to create a meeting place on the Esplanade to socialise. Yes, there are some young people who can occasionally act in an anti-social way, but the vast majority are people of whom we can be proud.Sidmouth has a disproportionate number of elderly people, who on the whole, have a good relationship with the youth of Sidmouth, although some can be a little intolerant.
A face to face dialogue in a pleasant environment is preferred to communication by text or email, and this the Esplanade Shelter Youth Caf� will aim to deliver. Sidmouth Town Council has been most supportive and although there are several hurdles to clear before we are operational, we hope that on one of your next visits we will be able to offer the author of the letter some refreshment and hospitality.

EDITOR'S NOTE: ?It has come to the editor's attention that a letter purporting to be from an E Dobson of Alexandria Road published in the Herald of July 17 under the heading Road issues need addressing was supplied with a fictitious name and address.
The Herald would like to apologise to the real E Dobson, of Sidmouth, who has no connection at all with the letter.
