Take care not to prune too far

EDITOR – It has been proven over the years that wherever a celebrity opens an event, the crowds will follow.

Cutbacks by the council are all very well but, go too far and you will end up losing out.

Careful pruning of a tree or shrub will help to keep it in good order, but cut too deep and you will kill it.

The same will happen to the switch-ons and yes the crowds will dwindle.

On another note, I agree with John Gregory (Leader – May 9), about Mablethorpe’s town clerk Jenny Cooper.

She did a good job when she was town clerk in Alford and she will be missed in the Mablethorpe area because she was always so helpful and, above all, approachable.
