DRIVING

Senior drivers are a danger to others

Reading the article OAP smashes through the back of his garage, (Gazette July 20), reinforced my belief that when someone reaches the age of 70, they should be given a medical and rigorously retested.

I find the view by Shelagh Parkinson (Viewpoint, July 8) expressing her frustration at residential schemes for South Promenade failing to progress, quite irritating.

COMMUNITY

So proud at efforts of the local people

Can I, through the Gazette, say how proud I was to have known such a band of hard working people who gave their time, experience and materials all for free, working very long hours, day in, day out, to get the DIY SOS Big Build finished in just over 10 days. When a build of this nature takes at least three months, it’s nothing short of a miracle. The feeling of pride I have in these people is just incredible.

Compensation is not for veterans’ care

I have tried to get the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO)interested in the problem of about 90 per cent of borough councils using squaddies’ compensation (for loss of body parts etc) to pay for their care.

COUNCIL

South Prom £4.5m hotel plan is ‘risky’

I think most people would agree that the derelict hotels along South Promenade have blighted this area for a long time. They do not give off a good first impression for those arriving from the motorway or visiting from St Annes.

Empty shops not landlords’ fault

I wish Tim Gavell ( Gazette Viewpoint, July 12) had researched his subject more thoroughly before blaming shop landlords for run down town centres.

As I was born into a struggling working class family, whose father had periods of illness, I recall the delight of my parents at the inception of the National Health Service.

We need investment not ‘hurtful cuts’

On Tuesday, July 5, schools across the Fylde were closed or partially closed as teachers took industrial action to defend schools from the effects of funding cuts and the threat to teachers’ conditions and pay by the spread of privatisation of schools.
