DEREK Adams, the manager of the Medway Centre, in Oxmoor, is retiring after 11 years in his post and, as a friend and resident of the area, I feel that I should commend him for his unfailingly positive attitude and terrifying energy levels.

He is far too modest to take any credit for his efforts, stating that there is a whole army of support behind him in the forms of the Medway Users' Group. But few would argue that his appointment back in 1997 heralded a new chapter in the area's development and renaissance.

Too often the town council is criticised for taking the wrong decision, but in my view it is to be commended for picking the right candidate at that interview.
