WITHOUT doubt, to allow the arcade scheme would be disastrous for the town. It is only recently that we have got rid of the hordes of baseball-capped, shell track-suited undesirables that frequented the Market Square, hanging around in gangs gloating and comparing their punishments handed down by the court.
To give these individuals another reason to hang around the centre of the town would be a backward step, not only to the town but the businesses and residents of Huntingdon.
My limited knowledge of amusement arcades suggests that they seem to be predominately populated by schoolchildren and the unemployed. Carey Leisure says that the development would bring life back to the market square - we don't want this type of life in our town.
Huntingdon should do its utmost to stop this scheme. The fact that the council and various other bodies have objected to this development must tell Carey Leisure that the majority do not want this in our town and that they should go elsewhere.
