Axminster seats in need of repair

Repairs for public seats will cost a ‘significant sum’.

MORE than a dozen public seats in Axminster need repairing – at a cost of around �600.

Town Councillor Jerry Walden said it would add a significant amount to next year’s budget.

But he added: “They are an asset to the town and need doing.”

He said the good news was he had now found a contractor willing to undertake the job and the cost could be spread over two financial years.

Councillors were told the cost of repair worked out at about �58 a seat, compared to buying a new seat which could range from �250 to �800.
