I write regarding the possible screening of the eyesore that is the remains of Newark’s Robin Hood Hotel (Cycle Race Screening Idea For Derelict Hotel, Advertiser, July 27).

Thinking outside the box, why not make it a feature for the television coverage?

Time permitting, could not some local artists cover the whole facade with a full height, side view of a peloton?

Larger than life colourful cyclists (heading in the right direction, of course) could cover the outer wall up to the eaves, making a statement that Newark welcomes the Tour Of Britain.

It would also temporarily conceal a perception of dereliction in our town centre.  — ANDREW WALSH, Newark (Full address supplied).
