Dismay at National Trust's shop move


I write this as someone who has been a member of the National Trust for almost 30 years.

Am I alone in finding the National Trust's action in driving a small souvenir shop at the Causeway out of existence regrettable and draconian?

This little shop has served tourists well for many long years as they sought to buy a souvenir reminder of their visit to the north coast.

Could it be that the trust's big visitor centre, with its items at grossly inflated prices, is jealous of competition from a small enterprise?

Is this yet another example of a high-handed act by the trust which has made several faux pas this past year?
