WE ventured into March on Saturday only to find the traffic lights were out.

What a joy this was, no traffic backed up down Broad Street or Station Road/Creek Road, everybody being sensible and the whole thing went like a dream. We parked and then went to give some jumble to Cancer Research in Fenland Walk. Two windows out, one in the charity shop (God help us that is totally uncharitable) and one in the florist.

Does the council not think it is time to have proper policing in this town with its vandalism increasing on a weekly basis? This used to be a nice town with nice shops. All we have now is broken windows and run down shops. Most shop out of town if they are able to do so, all the revenue leaves March to end up elsewhere.

The town is looking sad and neglected. I think it's time for new blood in the council chamber.

We need people who care about the image and the fiscal advantages of a good shopping centre with adequate parking in a rapidly expanding town.

I am only expressing what hundreds are also saying, come on Fenland Hall wake up before it is too late and not only have the shoppers gone but the residents also.
