Have your say

IT was good to read that donations are still being received to the Give a Little Help A Lot campaign (Gazette April 11).

As an organisation working with families in need throughout the year, may I draw readers’ attention to our furniture recycling service and toy bank which we operate from our resource centre on Whitegate Drive?

If anyone could help us by donating good quality items of furniture or toys, we have families in desperate need waiting for any help we are able to give.

Our office telephone number for collections is (01253) 761444.

COULD I please ask all cat and bird lovers to put collars on cats with bells to prevent them catching birds.

It gives all birds a fighting chance to be able to escape.

I have two cats with bells on their collars, and they are part elasticated so they don’t get caught in branches.

My cats, thankfully, haven’t caught a bird, and have never been caught by a collar in a tree, which is the other voiced reason people don’t put collars on cats. Please don’t let your cat ever take a bird’s life.

IT is an indisputable fact there was a tram track up to Layton Square (The Gazette, April 23).

The terminus was approximately outside Layton Library.

As one tram left Layton Square, there was another one waiting outside the Queens Hotel, opposite the laundry, to replace it. The service ended in Talbot Square next to the tram track, which ran along Whitegate Drive.

When the trams were discontinued, the promised five-minute bus service to replace them never materialised.
