LETTER: Ostracise and isolate regime

MP Caroline Ansell says that we must be ‘pragmatic’ over Donald Trump, i.e. work with him to make the world ‘a safer place’. Given the behaviour of this overgrown playground bully, whose finger will soon hover over the nuclear button, we would say that it would be ‘pragmatic’ to have as little to do with him as possible.

OUT IN THE FIELD: Council must get a handle on ‘toiletgate’

Two things are interfering with my chakras this week and while many of the good townsfolk won’t be at all bothered by them, I most certainly am. The first concern is the lack of toilet facilities in Princes Park. For months now the conveniences have been closed and despite protestations to the council, there is still no opening date. Not the end of the world you may think but any parent will disagree especially when enjoying the facilities at the park and your charge utters those immortal words, “Mummy, I need a wee wee.” It’s even worse if they need a number two and the nearest public toilets are more than half a mile away. The £900,000 refurbishment of the park is all well and good but somebody at the council needs to get a handle on what is fast becoming known as ‘toiletgate’ and soon.

We had two wonderful volunteers start at the Hub on Monday to help to get the project ready, and they must have enjoyed it because they are both coming back on Wednesday!
