In reply to your article ‘Appeal to tidy town eyesore’ (September 11 issue), I feel our organisation was treated very badly over this very area.
Five years ago was the 80th anniversary of Townswomen’s Guilds and the 60th anniversary of Daventry Abbey Townswomen’s Guild branch.
To commemorate these anniversaries, we approached the twinning association and the council with a view to planting two suitable flowering trees in this area, but we were rejected.
The council could not even provide us with a suitable alternative area.
I am sure you can imagine the comments our members have been making with regard to this area!
Chairman, Daventry Abbey Townswomen’s Guild
