LIVING almost in town, I am keenly interested in Farnborough thriving.

I attend every development meeting to see if there is a glimmer of light at the end of this long drawn out, and very dark, "tunnel" of development of Farnborough town centre.

Alas, not yet.

But some of us still "carry a torch" for the much busier town that it used to be. And lots of small shops.

But some new blood with verve on the council at this election may be able to "roll the stone away" for that promised resurrection of Farnborough town centre.
