Sample Answer of General Writing Task 1 Sample 2 – public park near where you live
My name is Mahesh, a resident of the Santosh Nagar colony for 5 years. I am writing to bring to your attention a piece of disturbing news that I would like you to publish in your newspaper Times Today. I have had heard of plans for selling a park from several sources. Firstly, I saw a few engineers are taking various measurements of the park. In addition, the park security person mentioned this plan when he was questioned by me.
The park is of utmost importance to our local community as people go there to play sports such as badminton, volleyball. Also, elderly people do regular walking and yoga and many families use it for social activities during weekends. Therefore selling a park will affect the local residents as there is no other park within a 10km radius.
I would like you to publish an article about the drawbacks of this plan and express the community’s great disapproval of the selling idea. I have collected the signatures of most of the residents who are against this plan. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
I look forward to seeing your article soon in the newspaper.
