Letter: Frankly appalled at poor sound in the chapel

Last Friday I attended the funeral of Alan Callaghan, past president of Mansfield Chamber of Trade & Commerce and frankly I was appalled by the quality of the sound system in the chapel at Mansfield Crematorium.

The rendition of the music during the ceremony brought to mind that of our ‘wind-up’ gramophone playing in our air raid shelter during the war!

The chapel and grounds are so well kept that I am surprised the sound system is so badly neglected.

Surely Mansfield and District Council can do better than to allow this state of affairs to continue.
