Weston Mercury letters

Friday, May 15, 2015

I WRITE to share my appreciation of all the volunteers who contributed to the recent democracy activities: people who believe in something and were proactive.

I AM sorry Mr Jeffrey totally missed the point of my previous letter. I have no criticism of the appointment of an apprentice for the Playhouse and would be delighted to see more young people in the theatre.

WELL done Briana Millett for your article on April 9 highlighting the housing ‘crisis’ in North Somerset.

A FEW years ago I attended a meeting of councillors from the four councils in the West of England Partnership’s area.

I KNEW our dear council has become quite absurd with many of its decisions but has it finally totally taken leave of its senses?

I HAVEN’T travelled into Weston town centre for a while, but last week as I made my way along Church Road heading for Upper Bristol Road, I was informed that the road was closed and to follow a diversion.

I WOULD like to say how much I enjoyed Alistair Todd’s letter of February 21, regarding the poetic sensibilities of the local council, although I feel he has been misled.

IT SEEMS that Weston is becoming more archaeological site than seaside town, but maybe that isn’t a bad thing.

FIRSTLY, why not rename your paper Weston, Worle and Somerset Mercury “with Mike Bell’s views”.

STAY quiet and listen to your superiors. We can speak to each other on a daily basis but when it comes to our representatives on the district council, they only want to know us, the voter that is, every few years at election time.
