I WRITE to commiserate with your elderly lady correspondent who currently finds passers-by are reluctant to wish a cordial "good afternoon" to strangers on the streets of Saffron Walden.

I refer to Reporter Postbag July 5. For myself, I find dog owners with their dogs are an exception; whenever I meet a dog owner taking the dog for its walkies I am always greeted with a friendly "hello" and a few words about the past or present weather conditions.

Furthermore, every time I visit the town's shops, banks, Post Office and reception offices I always find myself in the company of polite, well-mannered people who help me with my purchases and other unforeseen problems that I may encounter in the town.
