Port Sunlight's individuality has gone
2:09pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Letters
AS someone who grew up in Port Sunlight, I felt prompted to write to you concerning the positive article in your paper with regards the village's recent 125th anniversary celebrations.
What has happened to the village is that it has lost all its individuality as a great place in which to be raised.
For example, the fantastic outdoor heated swimming pool which was a wonderful feature in the village was unnecessarily closed and is now the site of an uninspiring garden centre.
Disgracefully, New Ferry baths, which could and should have been updated to Olympic standard, also went the same way.
The boys' club, which was one of the finest in the area, also closed and along with it the excellent football pitch in Pool Bank, which was constantly in use.
Finally, who would have thought that the Royal British Legion, with the biggest membership of any in legion in the country, would be closed in the interest of profiteering.
No, rather than celebrate a 125th anniversary, I feel we should lament the passing of days when Port Sunlight was a lively, vibrant community and a joy to live in.
L Davies, Neston.
