R.I.P Bath Street

I don’t live on Button Moon as suggested by a fellow letter writer(Advertiser Thursday october 18) but I’m not naive enough to think that a new supermarket and college will regenerate our main shopping streets.

Once again our so called local councillors on the planning committee have failed to see the bigger picture and fully understand Ilkeston and its people.

What this decision has done is basically split our town in two. Where we used to congregate each weekend in our main shopping streets to chat and pass the time of day with other townsfolk will now be lost forever.
