I WAS reading with some interest your article in this weeks’ paper about an ice rink coming to town.

When will the town council get it right? What we need are shops as at the moment Andover is a dying town. The shops that do come into the Chantry Centre very rarely last that long because of the huge rent in the above mentioned.

If Basingstoke and other places can afford to have decent shops, why can’t we?

Yes we do need more for the youth to do but until the town council address this as a whole unit Andover will always be a dying town.
