I AM writing in response to Peter Whitwell's letter. My family have lived in Benwick for generations and in that time there have been many changes, in retrospect not all for the better.

Most inhabitants try to embrace new residents and new ideas. It is sad, however, when newcomers move in and want to change things for the sake of change.

I agree that change can be a good thing but it is not always so.

Mr Langford is a "true villager" in every sense of the word. His family has been part of this village for many years and he always has the best interests of the village at heart.

Benwick is booming, compared with what? Compared with just a decade ago there are fewer amenities and events.

If this village is to thrive then we all have to sing from the same hymn sheet. It is good to encourage new blood but surely not at the cost of criticising and condemning everything that exists.

For the sake of the village we need to communicate sensibly and work together for the common good. Let's learn to live and let live.
