I’ve often thought that it would be nice for Hale village to have the odd new shop that isn’t an estate agency.

I have come up with the idea of a temporary seasonal leather-goods shop, specifically aimed at the wealthy ladies of Hale who don’t enter into the true spirit of Christmas - It could be called “Bah Handbag!”

I can envisage the scene on official opening day - 4 x 4s everywhere, some of them actually parked properly. Well, I can dream!

Yours faithfully,

D Peters
