The old and the rich will destroy Bamberg

Could do with a few rich retirees coming to Colwyn Bay - or maybe not!  Not sure that I like the concept of blaming the old - the rich maybe - perhaps because I fall into the former category.  I think that, when people move to a new area, they do so because they have a concept of life there based on a few visits.  However, the reality is often very different.  I was always very honest when talking to people about moving to rural Ireland and probably lost the odd sale as a result.  Jacqueline always said that I was too honest about the down side but I hated to think of people encountering problems.  Same when I was selling cars but I believe that honesty is the best policy and reaps its own rewards.

It's also true that,sometimes, long-term residents lose their perspective on what is valuable about a place and it sometimes takes newcomers to remind them.  We do have to be prepared for change because that is what drives life on - but beware of what you wish for!
