I must say that I endorse the opinion (The News, June 24) from Maureen Anderson that the town has gone over the top in its proliferation of flower beds about town.
I support making the town attractive, but it is getting silly. The large display of beds around the railway crossing on Memorial (Avenue) is excessive, and the beds on the railway bank are scarcely visible to anyone anyway — especially if drivers are keeping their eyes on the road!
And on the subject of water conservation, residents are being urged to conserve water, but the golf courses are free to water away at a much lower cost per litre than the rest of us. What is the sense of this?
