Looking for naming support

IN THE late summerCllr Robert Cooke committed the Conservative group to supporting the idea which I raised on your Letters page, of re-naming Priory Square after Alan Turing.

We have now both written to the Leader of the Council assuming that there will be cross-party support for such a move (and asking how, if at all, we can help).

Unfortunately we haven’t yet had the green light on this from the council.

I am hopeful that other residents who share our view that Alan Turing’s connection with the town should be commemorated will write to the leader of the council in the same vein.

We need to get critical mass on this.

I am very grateful in advance for any help that readers can give.
