SIR, — Like the Grimstons, my family have lived in and around St Albans for several hundred years. Indeed many of my ancestors worked for the Grimstons. St Albans is obviously a lot larger these days but in my opinion remains a loyal and caring community.
SIR, - Like the Grimstons, my family have lived in and around St Albans for several hundred years. Indeed many of my ancestors worked for the Grimstons.
St Albans is obviously a lot larger these days but in my opinion remains a loyal and caring community. So I would expect the overwhelming majority of residents to support the villagers of Park Street in their David-and-Goliath battle against the proposed rail-freight terminal.
It therefore came as a sad surprise to learn that the Grimstons appear happy to enter into a deal with the rail freight developer Helioslough (Herts Advertiser, March 26).
I am particularly interested in learning how Lady Verulam can reconcile this behaviour with the office of Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire and her "active interest in the social well-being of the county".
