Weston Mercury letters

What a load of rubbish...

I reside in Bristol, but regularly visit my parents who live near the seafront in Weston.

I am not surprised shops in Weston are closing down; with the expensive cost of car parking, shopping is no pleasure any more.

Make our roads a safer place...

After Daisy Wiseman’s recent Mercury letter, I wholeheartedly agree with her defence of the immense contribution that immigrants have made, and continue to make, to this country and to this town.

I recently visited my home town of Weston and felt totally depressed.

I’m neither rich, nor evil...

New homes mean more GPs needed

In my opinion a great achievement was reached when three out of four councils decided to accept devolution and a metro mayor.

As the Brexiters’ euphoria subsides, they are faced with the harsh reality of what to do now. And, unsurprisingly, they don’t seem to know. Yet the country desperately needs leadership.

North Somerset Council (NSC) is reluctant to have a metro mayor. It is expected the other three councils will back devolution.

Two weeks ago, January 28, the Mercury reported that North Somerset Council (NSC) had given the Birnbeck Pier owners 21 days to make the structure safe following the collapse of the north jetty in December’s Storm Frank.
