Have your say

I JUST had to write and thank Coun Gillian Campbell for the help and support she has given my daughter and her family over the last months.

Coun Campbell has been a rock for them as they have struggled with Blackpool Coastal Housing.

Through helping my family, Coun Campbell has fought the case of many others.

I have rarely met a more vibrant, caring person.

So many are keen to blame councillors for everything that goes wrong.

I can only praise Coun Campbell for her determination, caring and help.

I ATTENDED the Poulton Forum and would like to commend Coun Simon Bridge for his words regarding the travelling community in the Hardhorn ward.

Coun Bridge said the travellers he knows through his church wish to be part of the community where they can settle and have their children educated locally.

At last, somebody is showing concern for these people and their children’s welfare.

Coun Gibson said he fears that the travellers may move to one of Wyre’s car parks if they are evicted from their site.

I have lived in Poulton for more than 60 years and have never heard reports of travellers setting up a site on town centre car parks.

As a community we should work together to solve this problem.

NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED

THANK you for such fine tributes to my mother Coun Mary Smith (Gazette February 27 and 28).

Her death is a great loss to everyone in the town.

If people would like to honour her memory, I would suggest they support the charity closest to her heart, Donna’s Dream House, and make a contribution to them.
