WHAT has happened to Huntingdon, once a wonderful market town to live in, with plenty of entertainment and an abundance of shops for everything one needs? Now we are crammed up with estate agents and banks.
Public schools were all in town. Children didn't need buses and cycles to get to school. Roads are getting dangerous with traffic.
Huntingdon was once a clean and tidy town, run by a few shopkeepers as councillors, who listened to the people of the town.
Having seen the drains and gullies around the town filled with dirt and leaves and not cleaned for ages, it seems our now multitude of councillors are interested only in spending a small fortune of ratepayers' money on a massive amount of council offices for their own comfort. If they are going to last only as long as Pathfinder House, why waste such large sums on them?

Huntingdon badly needs a multi-storey car park to clear our congested roads of cars. Councillors are smashing down property just to waste public money. It is out of order, and our town will never improve.
Our council sold all the council houses at vast profit. What happened to the money?

I read in our daily paper that Huntingdonshire Council Tax has risen the highest in the country. Why has this happened?
Huntingdon once had a first class police force. Now we have none, as they all need expensive cars to run about it.
