Public house trouble

I am just writing this letter after reading the article about the Fleece public house, 26 October edition.

Amanda Smith - who is she?

Someone who does not bother to report incidents that happen in the town because she is too scared of reprisals, isn’t this why we have a police force who would protect us?

I live over the road from the Fleece and I have never seen anyone leaving the pub who caused any trouble or did any criminal damage.

I also drink in the pub occasionally and always get a warm friendly welcome from the couple who manage it.

They are only trying to make a living and surely it is better to keep this local pub open than boarded up in these financial hard times?
