Letter: Another shop on Newmarket

EDITOR - Re Co-op. What a shame the council think it’s more important to have another shop on Newmarket, which I’m sure will put the other two smaller family run shops out of business, instead of providing a suitable skateboard/scooter/bike park for the ever growing number of children in Louth.

As far as I can see there is very little in the way of free places the children can go. The government want children to play outdoors more and get more exercise yet the council seem to give them nothing.

The children who used the Newmarket site to skate and scooter now have nowhere to go except hanging around the bus station and they always seemed very well behaved and polite on Newmarket it’s a shame no one wants to help keep them fit and healthy and safe with a purpose built skate park.
