WE would like to give a big thank you to Johnnie Casson who came and opened our Christmas Fair, as he did a couple of years ago.

He was a great success in making it a very profitable day as any fee he would have been given, he donated to charity and he even bought from each stall.

He is a great comedian and very funny, and fit for all the family, and everyone enjoyed seeing him. Thanks from all at Central Methodist Church.

I hope he has a very happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.

I HAVE just spent a most enjoyable week in Blackpool and must express my gratitude for all the wonderful improvements that have taken place.

The new Promenade is fantastic, Birley Street I am sure is unique and the Illuminations on and around the Tower are excellent.

There was only one low point and that was my experience of using the council-owned bus company.

I bought a weekly ticket to tour the local area and picked up timetables.

During the whole of my week not one bus ran on time and the buses were dirty inside and out.

So, Blackpool Council sort out your bus company or sell it to a company that can run it properly.

THE current debt situation is a fact and people of my age group didn’t believe in not paying their way.

But this Government’s insistence debt has to be paid off during this Parliament, despite the hardship it is causing, is so unnecessary.

At the end of the Second World War, we were up to our ears in debt with our infrastructure destroyed, but we didn’t do what this lot are doing.

I believe Gordon Brown paid off our war debt finally a few years ago.

Yes, it cost us more but it didn’t hurt a shattered population.

The mantra of ‘you can’t get out of debt by borrowing’ is a nonsense. A lot of firms run on overdraft and how many people go into debt to get on the property market?
