St Neots cinema - councillors should grow up
WHAT a wonderful idea, the suggestion of joining forces regarding the cinema (Hunts Post, August 6). It s about time Derek Giles and Barry Chapman put away their conkers and stopped acting like schoolboys. Even if they don t know it, they are men now and
WHAT a wonderful idea, the suggestion of joining forces regarding the cinema (Hunts Post, August 6). It's about time Derek Giles and Barry Chapman put away their conkers and stopped acting like schoolboys.
Even if they don't know it, they are men now and should act accordingly for the good of the people of St Neots. They were elected to do just that, not argue which one is better than the other.
Incidentally, this is not a new subject. Ever since our original cinema was demolished in the late 1960s a new one has been on the cards. Not just because Peter Rowley left a donation.
Perhaps the councillors involved can recall a few years ago the Priory Centre was used as a cinema, which fell flat on its face because it was totally inadequate.

The suggested Huntingdon Street site would seem to be an ideal location, being adjacent to the town and major car parks. It was stated by Huntingdonshire District Council that the site was not available until next May, then in the next breath that they are not involved. Are they waiting for a better offer, perhaps a few more town houses for commuters to London where they can have the choice of dozens of cinemas or theatres?
Isn't it sad in this day and age that people elected to speak on behalf of its constituents have to spend so much time trying to go it alone for their own gratification.

Even the town council works on its own, or at least it is portrayed like that, borrowing monies such as £350,000 for a community centre and £400,000 for a cemetery - the latter possibly being the only true bit of forward thinking, as that is where most of us will end up.
