An update in the Press this afternoon refers to a statement issued by the brewery. My jaw dropped......firstly because the brewery issued something more than a 'no comment' statement, but secondly for the reason given for opposing the bridge. Humphrey considers that the £500,000 estimated cost of a footbridge ''would not be good use of taxpayers money'. I find this statement of breathtaking arrogance, that someone could consider inflicting a year of misery because of a penny pinching attitude. Yes, it is a lot of money, but the floods have caused a lot of expense to a lot of people. Tadcaster desperately needs to be reunited as soon as possible, so please, Humphrey, listen to the residents, forget the cost, and let the footbridge be built next week.
