Letter: New Milton KFC – litter comes from posh shops too




SIR – Further to recent letters complaining about the fact that KFC is opening in New Milton (A&T, 6th August) and the usual worries about rubbish, fast food, obesity and ‘lowering the tone’, has it not occurred to anyone that the Marks & Spencer store, which is believed to be opening further down Station Road, will sell sandwiches, buckets of cooked chicken, etc, which can also be thrown around the place?

M&S also sells food which is often calorie-laden and full of sugar and fat. Whilst I am not a particular fan of KFC and would have preferred a Café Rouge or a Bella Italia, it is at least something that will occupy one of the disused shops that are such an eyesore in our pretty town.

A KFC is planned for the old NatWest building in Station Road

Let us also not forget that this may also encourage other major chains into the town.

And the rubbish? I have no doubt that KFC will provide bins and there are plenty around town.

However, unless local residents, both young and old, use said bins there will always be a problem whether the rubbish is from a takeaway or a ‘posh’ shop!
