Letter - Wakefield has a genuine happy vibe

Harrogate the happiest place to live in Britain? Give me Wakefield any time!

There is something about Harrogate that does not add up - it is a proud and wealthy place, with its Wealth Management offices (also in similar towns and villages in that area), but Wakefield has a genuine vibe to it, some real integrity.

We also have some great buildings, pubs and shops! Harrogate for years was a dormitory (forgive the last four letters of that word) town.

The quality of life up north is far better that darn sarf; London is like a foreign country.

Wakefield well deserves third best - and it is getting better! We should take pride!
