On reading your front page story in last week's Comet, I think that Tushar Shah could very will be right when he says that we in Letchworth Garden City are living under a dictatorship. It would appear that the Director General is in command of a well paid army of employees, who do exactly as Mr Kenny says. There is also a group of governors who appear to do exactly the same; in other words what Mr Kenny says, no one dare disagree with.

Certainly The Wynd area needs to be redeveloped into an attractive and viable shopping area. The shops in Leys Avenue should remain, there is absolutely no need to destroy this avenue in order to redevelop The Wynd. There are four pedestrian entrances to The Wynd, which should easily cater for new customers to The Wynd (this is Letchworth, not Brent Cross).

The residents of Letchworth should urgently protest to NHDC Planning Department against the destruction of the shops in Leys Avenue, before the Garden City is destroyed.

Returning to the Moores Pharmacy, Tushar Shah is an excellent family pharmacist, and a much valued member of Letchworth Garden City community, and many residents rely on his service and advice. Moores Pharmacy must not be forced to close, which would also mean five staff would lose their jobs.

If the Director General has a heart, it is time he started thinking about the residents of Letchworth who pay his wages, instead of only himself.
