Sir: I found "The brave new metropolitans" (20 August) extremely offensive. But then I live in central London. As do tens of thousands of other families. What's to pioneer?

Yes, the centre of London is a brilliant place but it is mostly the people who live here who make it so vibrant. Who needs the approval of yuppies? Their arrogance is matched only by their ignorance of London. The nursery praised in the piece has nothing to do with the Thomas Coram Foundation, although they have consistently provided moral and financial support. It was established for local children by local parents. I was one of them.
