I HAVE to respond to the item in today's Oxford Mail [Aug 5, P13] concerning Bicester and its pedestrian zone.

We in Kidlington also have a pedestrian zone and like Bicester it has been flouted for years.

I hope for a change, some urgent attention will be given to Kidlington as well as to Bicester.

Our village deteriorates every day. It is hardly recognisable as the village I once knew.

Mrs D Wyse,
