Letter: Classes ‘gave me confidence’

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY endorse Colin Stepney’s comments in his letter to you (February 23) concerning the closure of Renee Martin’s workshops at the Capitol.

More years ago than I care to remember, I also attended classes she ran, but it was not until some years later that I realised they had given me a confidence I never had.

More importantly, it also involved face to face interaction with other people, something greatly lacking these days with our youngsters which seems to consist totally of texting, emailing, Facebook and other things beyond my comprehension!

I really hope that our council can find a way to retain this life enhancing and necessary activity for our young people.
