On a visit to Kendal on January 17, we parked at 9am at Dowker Lane car park.

It was covered in ice and was very unsafe to walk on. Someone must be responsible for gritting it - it’s not fair to the public if it’s not gritted.

Also the alleyway from the car park looked filthy and covered in litter.

Kendal used to be a lovely place to visit – the Gateway to the Lakes. It looked like the ‘Gateway to the Tip’ on my visit.

Bring the sparkle back, instead of the dull mess its becoming.
