Letter: Picture could be used at football ground

With reference to Alan Romaine’s letter of November 14, and the wonderful picture of a field of poppies in Ryhall Road on June 21 last year where the new football ground now stands, could it not be reproduced, hung in the football stadium and called ‘New Beginning’ with an explanation underneath?

Letter: Make progress on nuclear power

It is always refreshing to know Stamford hosts people with a sense of public concern enough to alert us to the folly of wind turbines.

Letter: Consequences of employment legislation not unforseen

I think that Brian Bruce, (Mercury Letters November) has missed the point. There has indeed been some very bad employment legislation in recent decades. However, I do not think that the consequences were ‘unforseen’. Far from it.

Letter: Wind statistics raise questions

Here we go again. The unsuitability of a wind farm on the site at Woolfox does not seem to have deterred REF who presmably would receive a large subsidy.

Letter: Bring politicians into ‘reality’

While I don’t always agree with everything in John Docker’s Senior Moment column, I recognise that it is usually a semi-satirical piece of journalism.

Letter: Road surface has been ‘bodged up’

Knowing that soon the sports complex on the Ryhall road will open, and no doubt will be a joy for all, what a shame how they have bodged up the road serving it.

Letter: Why don’t riders use cycle path?

I would like to ask certain members (not all) of the cycling community why they continue to use a busy road when there is a perfectly good cycle path a metre away from them!

I prudently take steps to protect my garden birds from neighbourhood cats. Why won’t cat owners reciprocate?
