OH dear, what a sad place Sale has become.

On Saturday I walked into the precinct and there are now more empty units than there are full ones. Like all town centres there are more and more charity and pound shops.

Walking past what was the Waggon and Horses pub there is an overgrown site, the majority of shops are closed and look vandalised.

Occasionally we hear councillors say that they are going to do something with this area.

Well here’s a suggestion – take out a compulsory purchase order, knock the lot down and clear the site.

Until something is ready to be built on it make it into a park – at least the gateway to Manchester would be tidy.

The town is going to deteriorate until there are no visitors.

Please don't blame the Trafford Centre, you knew it was coming and buried your heads in the sand.
