People happy to live in a cocoon

WITH reference to Brian Paddick, Make a Difference Day (News Post Leader, letters, September 1), sorry to rain on his parade but the council had similar ideas about two years ago.

I think we had a leaflet asking residents to meet at a corner convenient for all – only about five turned up.

Most people are quite happy in their little cocoon, so the minority who may remember the friendliness of neighbours in the past, will have to just put up with memories.
