Yet another casualty of the Tesco fiasco!

Not only has Seaton lost its visitor accommodation with the enforced closure of Lyme Bay Holiday Village, together with the swimming pool, gym and conference facilities, I have this week tried to check up on National Express coaches in order to book a seat, only to find that the TIC is no longer doing these bookings. Now we know why. Your paper informs us that the TIC has been closed down and the staff made redundant.

All we get from those "in authority" is excuses and promises, promises.

Our youth are still looking for somewhere to go. Personally I had to go to Exeter to get the necessary coach ticket and what does that do for our environment? I am not prepared to give out my personal details on the "web" and never use it for any financial dealings.

Like many others of my generation, I cannot see Seaton thriving in my lifetime. It has indeed been killed off by those who should serve us better.
