My idea for Lent

Published in Letters by

LAST night in the Minster the University of York celebrated the “50 years of changing the World”.

As it was Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent, maybe they ought to have given up building on the Green Belt for Lent.

Shrove Tuesday comes from the word ‘shrive’, meaning to confess. Perhaps while they were in the Minster they should have confessed to adding to all the pollution.

What a load of rubbish, have you bothered to find out about the new campus? Before it was just a farmers field, now there are whole areas given over to conservation. Yes there are buildings but once the whole site is established it will be a very important area ecologically speaking. Already there are rare species making their homes by the lake.

Some people have such a knee jerk reaction to change.
