Mercy service VAT campaign

Madam,

Re your front page story on the plans for the old grammar school.

This is really good news. It is always sad to see such historically important buildings in any town left empty and going to ruin.

This particular building has been empty for too long.

It is also good to see a local firm committing to the town and not moving our to find bigger premises – on some industrial estate in a city somewhere.

If a firm is spending that amount of money on doing up a building it bodes well.
