The letter from the Labour team (Letters, April 14) criticising Mr (sic) Pat Weller shows the depths of ignorance of these outsiders.

Pat is the probably the best-known person on the Knoll, being Chair of the Hangleton And Knoll Project and Manager of the St Richard's Community Centre.

Everyone knows her, except, it seems, the Labour candidates. Hardly surprising as they never turn up to Knoll Community Association meetings.

As a local councillor, I ask - who do you believe, partisan candidates claiming the credit at election times or the impartial chair of a community association?
