Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Your newspaper has a reputation of talking about different issues, related to the development works and improvements in our town, and I sure hope that you would take notice of this particular issue as well and publish it on your newspaper in order to attract the attention of the authority.

The issue is related to the improvement of shopping facilities in the Ferguson area where I like to visit and do shopping. Of course, I do not really have much complain about the shops in my area since most of them are generally offer affordable prices and carry quality products. I also like the fact that most of these shops are easily accessible from all directions. But, when it comes to keeping the parking spaces in front of the shops clean and tidy, as well as offering some extra sitting arrangement or resting places for the tired and elderly shoppers, the shops in my area certainly could use some improvements.

Therefore, I suggest that the shops employ enough staffs to keep the parking spaces clean while providing some comfortable sitting arrangement also for the elderly shoppers to rest. I hope you will publish an editorial in your newspaper regarding this.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Lydia Olivia

Write a letter to your local newspaper.


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Nosheen Imran, a teacher by profession, have been living in the south park area for a little over one year. As everything about this locality is marvellous including its picturesque views, amazing people and dazzling shopping district, I believe some measures should be taken to improve a shoppers experience.

To commence with, the shopping market is easily accessible and has a lot of high-quality products and amenities at affordable prices. Needless to say, the shop owners and salespersons are also very cordial and professional. However, the parking space is inadequate and away from the shops which make it difficult for people to find a suitable parking spot and elderly people cannot walk all the way to the market entrance. Moreover, the entrance gate is always crowded with long lines of people trying to pass the security check.

Therefore, I would suggest you publish an editorial regarding this so that the concerned authority takes proactive measures to ensure enough parking to cater to all customers. Moreover, a separate gate should be introduced for the elderly and women with kids to enter the market.

I hope you will consider my suggestion and take steps to help enhance our shopping experience to improve our community experience.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Nosheen Imran
