I WOULD like to respond to Tracey Read's letter (November 15).

First, just because I am a Poppy organiser does not mean that I am an old fuddy duddy, as anyone who actually knows me can tell you. Secondly, I have three sons all of whom attended the playschool (as it was then) and I did my fair share of fundraising, along with all the other parents at that time. If the reindeer parade had been suggested back then, I would still have objected to it as inappropriate. Thirdly, I was one of the parish councillors who voted for the pre-school to be given the sum of £3,500 out of this year's precept.
