Let’s add a dash of summer colour to our town next year.

EDITOR - Congratulations to the Rotary Club for their splendid summer market and open garden event in Market Rasen last Saturday.

Could we build on this for next year with the help of the Town Council and MR Big?

I recently went on the bus to Grimsby and could not but help admire the various floral displays.

Every major bus stop had a planter filled with bedding plants, including the Town Square at Caistor. In fact, nearly every town and village now seems to have some sort of floral display.

In Market Rasen, the approach to the railway station and the station itself have various planters - well done. In the Market Place in Market Rasen - nothing!

Surely a planter or two by the old pump would make the Market Place more attractive to visitors? MR Big seems to be very busy trying to fill our empty stores; are they forgetting that the town still has to be attractive to attract visitors in the first place, no matter how many stores you have open?
