Where’s the benches?

Last year on 15th July, I wrote in re: the benches that had not been replaced outside the Natwest Bank in Market Street, when the road and pavements were renewed.

I enclose the copy I was kindly given which clearly states “... and street furniture such as bins and benches.”

On making enquiries at the council, I was told the benches were taken by the town council at Richmond House. I am now writing as flower containers have, in the past few months been put along the walls where the benches were taken, but as yet no one has seen fit supply any benches, whether for waiting for a taxi or just to sit on!

Plus there are the waste bins, for the use of! Could your new secretary please make enquiries on behalf of us residents as to the reason these have not been, so far replaced?
