Grey brigade negativity

Your front page photograph of people opposed to Costa in Bakewell (Mercury January 31) was interesting.

Most of them,like me, represent the grey brigade and I become increasingly disillusioned about the negativity which this generation exhibits to anything new or innovative.

Do they ever think of the younger generation?

I sincerely hope that the Chief Executive of Costa is not swayed by the petition and that they will come to Bakewell before the town fossilises.
