Band 7.5 letter sample
Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing to you regarding the announced plans to close the Recreation Centre of Lower Binfield. This Centre plays an essential role in the life of my family. My parents both visit the swimming pool of the Centre. My sister is an active member of local theatre. My grandmother takes dancing classes with her friends, and my grandfather regularly wins chess championship of the town. All these facilities are kindly provided to the community by the Centre.
Thanks to this organization, children of our town are able to develop themselves both physically and mentally. Adults have an ability to be healthy and retired persons can spend their leisure time together.
In case of bringing this intention to life, everyone loses. Decreased number of sports opportunities will increase the load to the healthcare system. The absence of leisure activities may influence the crime rate among youths. Elderly persons become less happy and will tend to spend their time watching TV.
I hope that the local council will take my thoughts into consideration and will revise the plans of closing the Recreational Centre.
