From Mrs Clare Stevens

Sir: Thank you for reopening the debate on the future of Paternoster Square. As the parent of a St Paul's Cathedral chorister, I can tell you that my son and a lot of his friends have expressed the desire for an Astroturf football pitch on the site.

A mixed development of offices, residential apartments, shops and restaurants would be an ideal solution to the problem of Paternoster Square, particularly if the shops and restaurants were open at weekends and on summer evenings. There are few experiences more depressing than trying to occupy a small boy between the hours of 4.30pm and 7.30pm on a cold, possibly wet Sunday in the City.

Yours faithfully,

Clare Stevens
