Old folk need somewhere too

IT is great to see that provision for a youth hangout has been proposed for our ailing High Street, in the shape of a new juice bar.

The young people in Dunmow must get bored in the evenings, with so little to do, and I think this is the perfect addition for a sleepy market town such as ours.

However I do have one gripe, why is it that provision for the young always makes the front pages, which is understandable, but the older folk seem to get left behind?

I cannot remember the last time I heard of a new project being set up in the town for us older folk.

I used to be a regular visitor to the Mullucks auction rooms on Chequers Lane before they closed at the end of last year. That was one activity which really appealed to people of all ages and enabled families to have the same interests.

Maybe someone could bring auctions back to Dunmow, as I believe that is something we would all like to see.
