GOLDEN Square’s ‘letters to the Earth’ initiative, with children’s letters displayed on the former Wire Works shopfront is a laudable concept.

Sadly, a short walk to Scotland Road makes it clear that Warrington’s conscientious approach to the environment and climate change is only lip service and Warrington Borough Council is happy to oversee the unnecessary demolition of New Town House and Quattro, rather than assign it to other uses.

Such famous faces as Sir David Attenborough and Yoko Ono would assign the word hypocrisy to this action which betrays the upcoming generations who wrote these letters in the first place.
