IN response to Steve Fitton (Letters, December17) I do not believe that I have claimed to instigate raising any funding for the bollards at the Maple Centre on Oxmoor. I did however champion the need for them and I did get them installed in a fairly tight timeframe. Safety for my constituents wherever they live has always been my prime concern.

The money that paid for the bollards was district council money, Council Tax payers' money, properly used to protect local taxpayers as they go about their business. What's corrupt in that?

Mr Fitton does not state whether or not he is visibly impaired. If he is, he can be forgiven - if not, may I respectfully suggest he visits a local optician for an eye test.

There were only two bollards erected initially. These were outside the post office to prevent ram raiding of that facility. If Mr Fitton visits the area now, he will see bollards galore, all along the area in front of the shops, protecting everyone who uses the shops and all the other facilities.

It is such a shame when someone who has a little knowledge and adds a modicum of ignorance of any subject, then puts a pen to paper and gets it completely wrong, including exaggeration and innuendo.
