I AM writing in response to earlier criticisms of Mike Panes about the facia of Regal Garage in Upton.
It is distressing that those making the criticisms have made no mention of the tremendous support Mike Panes and his family have given to the town and its townspeople over many decades.
He has turned out to assist in numerous major emergencies such as flooding, fallen trees, agricultural incidents and serious road traffic accidents, as well as kindly opening his garage in the middle of the night for locals who have run out of fuel.
Many other residents and local businesses have spoken to me expressing support for Mike.
As a local resident who has known the whole Panes family since the 1960s and has assisted at the garage and in vehicle recovery operations, I hope that you will show some respect for the wideranging help that Mike has given to the town by publishing this letter.
KEITH BAYLISS Longdon
