THE March 22 Echo proudly proclaims “This is how life looked in Dorset 58 years ago” on pages 22 and 23, but if that is the case, why have three photos of life in Christchurch been included?

At that time Christchurch was still fixed firmly within my birth county of Hampshire and there are many of us who will never forgive the Conservatives for, amongst a heap of other things, implementing the totally unnecessary boundary changes.

Once a Hampshire hog, always a Hampshire hog and, beautiful though it is, you can do what you like with Dorset.
