Dear Sir,

Does anybody remember when the land between the Tennis Stadium and the Allergy Clinic was grass and not a mud covered parking lot? Or when the shorefront by Government House was grass and not asphalt? We are getting close to losing another green area by the north roundabout on Trimingham Road, which is also becoming a muddy parking lot. How many other areas of grass are we losing to the automobile? Are we to lose every blade of grass before drivers are made to park in purpose built car parks? If it is the cost of parking, use public transport, or challenge the Corporation of Hamilton to reduce its fees in return for higher numbers of parked vehicles.

Let the grass grow
