Have your say

I AM writing in support of the Anne Frank exhibition which has been organised by The Anne Frank Trust UK and is currently being held at the Blackpool City Learning Centre, Bathurst Avenue, until November 30.

The Mayoress and I were invited on Friday November 9 to attend the official launch and were very impressed with this free event.

We were given a powerful and touching presentation and we would recommend a visit to this excellent exhibition.

We would also like to thank the organisers from the Anne Frank Trust UK for their invitation.

Opening times for the exhibition are during 
the afternoon week days 
and from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays.

COUN SYLVIA TAYLOR,

Mayor of Blackpool.

I THINK the Breakfast Revolution for school children (Gazette November 13) is a great thing.

However what concerns a lot of the taxpayers are the remarks made by Coun Simon Blackburn who says “The money to pay for this will have to come out of other services”.

This council seem to spend money on things like No Smoking signs in the local parks when money is supposed to be tight, yet they have to make cutbacks in other areas to fund neccessary services like this one.

It makes one wonder will the council get its act together on this enterprise.

I WRITE as a concerned reader after hearing about the possibility of fracking taking place on the Fylde coast in the Anna’s Road region.

The fact Cuadrilla has submitted a planning application to drill a horizontal well for ‘information purposes’ I feel is only the tip of the iceberg so to speak.

I think as many people as possible should 
oppose this application until more is known about the side effects of such a project.

I have seen the fracking documentary from 
the USA which alarmed me and though I am sure there are many areas 
in America that have 
been drilled for Shale 
Gas purposes without any further problems, I still think more needs to be learnt before permission is granted.

After all we live in a fragile world and once damage is done to our planet it 
is very difficult to put it right again much like 
the foundations of our very own lives and properties.
