Have your say

I WAS interested to read about trees blocking out road signs. (August 29th)

I have often noticed this and think local authorities should be more diligent about it.

However, it is probably not very high on their budget list.

Because of the high rainfall this summer, foliage has been particularly lush, but hidden signs, especially brown ones, are not good for the tourist trade.

READERS, who have never let us down when we have asked for help previously, may be aware there is a crisis of unwanted animals at present and everywhere is full with long waiting lists.

As a result, we are looking for foster homes for some of these cats who are either in crash cages instead of a cosy, roomy pen or even still in people’s gardens.

It is a nice thing to do.

Cat Rescue will pay any vet bills if needed while in their foster home, which can be short or long term as required.

If you think you can help, call (01253) 720357 and if the answer machine is on, leave a message and we will get back to you quickly.

You can see some of the cats at www.catrescuefylde.co.uk

I HAVE lived in Warton for 60 years and cannot see any reason why we do not have a supermarket (Gazette, August 27).

It would be an asset to the village and would create jobs this county needs.

Our councillors and planners need to look to the future not the past.

We have enough derelict sites in Warton that need tidying up but the council and planners do nothing about them.

As ratepayers, we are entitled to have a say in our village of Warton.

The council does not own it.
