No wonder Hucknall is in such a state!

I’D LIKE to say how disappointed I was with the comments relating to the Hucknall Flag Design Competition that appeared in ‘Online Soapbox’ in the Dispatch.

It’s funny because I always thought a town was what its residents make of it. And with the general attitude that was expressed in those comments, I’m not at all surprised that Hucknall is in the state it is!

I hope that those comments do not reflect the true feeling of the writers. But if they do, I’m sure we can look forward to many more years of Tesco being the epicentre of Hucknall life.

To the young man who decided to create this morale-boosting competition off his own back and is now no doubt disheartened, I’d like you to know that there are at least a few of us out there who love your idea and appreciate what you are doing.
