Name opposed

I was incensed to read (Herald, August 28) that I was coerced into signing the petition about the change of name of the Ropetackle.

I would like the Basepoint regional manager to know that far from being coerced, I was delighted to have an opportunity to express my opposition to the name change.

The new name will never be used by me, it sounds like an anonymous inner city project, not something suitable for an historic area of the lovely town of Shoreham.

I would like to thank Mike Mendoza, Tim Loughton and Martin Allen for all their efforts to get this situation resolved.
