I AM in full agreement with Adam Campbell and the issue of A-boards (The Argus, April 30).

His business, along with many others, will be ruined if shopkeepers are allowed only limited pavement space.

He rightly says that during this depressing recession, people need guidance and support. Mr Campbell’s Home And Garden shop displays colourful plants.

We all need their spirit-lifting brightness.

So come on local leaders. In these hard times we don’t need new, petty, business-wrecking rules.
