I WRITE in support of Ely. I was astounded to read about this ''survey'' and can understand why Ely residents are angry. We keep a boat at Ely Marina and have been there for about a year. Ely is a wonderful city with a great history, architecture and many traditional English values. The parks and river are beautiful and it is a great pleasure to hear the band play in the park on Sundays. We have made many good friends in Ely and enjoy dining, boating, watching wildlife and taking part in the festivals and events. I could be selfish and say ''good we can keep it all to ourselves'' but people really don't know what they are missing. Friends that visit us always come back and are surprised to find this jewel of a city in the Fens.
