dear mr baton i am writing to you to express the committees concern about your plans for the sports facilities you asserted a lack of student interest so we conducted a survey which proved the opposite sixty percent of the students use the sports hall more than three times a week and the football ground is also used for training between matches therefore the committee decided to oppose your intention at least in this form students would not be able to practise if the hall were open for the public all day and it is certainly not fair that they should pay the high school fees as well the committee also had not heard that the college had to cut costs however i am sure we can talk about this matter and would be glad if we could arrange a meeting between you and the committee i look forward to hearing from you yours sincerely christopher halle
