I am not a scaremonger
REGARDING Councillor Barron's input in the last issue, it's quite unfair to suggest that I am a scaremonger.
This is not even about me. There are 140 people in our group and there were more than 1,000 signatories to our petition last year.
Are we all scaremongers? And just what do we have to gain from scaremongering?
The truth is that we have a legitimate cause for concern which has not been addressed by our elected representatives.
And Mr Barron may not have understood that my plea for reassurance that the Tor Leisure fields will not be built on, was speaking to Mendip District Council.
He and his fellow town councillors can pass as many motions as they like at their meetings but they will have very little impact on the outcome.
To the best of my knowledge, it is Mendip District Council who owns the land and Mendip District Council who have shown their intentions to develop some or all of it, so they hold all the cards.
Instead of trying to demonise us in the local press, our town councillors should be trying to help.
Let me suggest a meeting to see if we have any common ground.
I don't believe you want to lose the fields either so perhaps we can work together towards that goal.
