An ideal place for Freddie

RE ‘Sea-spray forces new location for Freddie’ (Scarborough News, December 13):

I do not think it was rocket science that this was going to happen.

From day one logics said it was obvious that where placed it was in time going to start to deteriorate. Placed facing the sea on the north side near the edge of the pavement and looking straight North East was certainly not ideal.

Any form of bare metal that is continuously in contact with sea air and salt water spray will deteriorate sooner rather than later.

An ideal position would have been to the left of the information centre on Sandside facing the old horse trough or that area where the most holiday makers walk.
