Sad SOS chairman is stepping down

EDITOR – Your article concerning Coun Andrew Ferryman (July 18) was very touching.

It is a rare thing to see a councillor being so very open and transparent as he was.

My husband and I are very sad that Andrew has had to stand down as chairman of SOS 1st. He has made a valuable contribution to Sutton on Sea. The residents’ association has brought together people who probably wouldn’t have met had it not been for the activities of SOS 1st.

What is appalling is that three of our councillors, who were elected as SOS 1st councillors, resigned from the group last year and yet continue to stay on the council.

I am heartened to find out 
that Andrew will continue to serve Sutton on Sea as a councillor.

Let’s face it, Andrew Ferryman at his worst is still streets ahead of our other councillors at their best.
