Ovarian cancer - time to act

When my mother Marjie Lawrence died from ovarian cancer seven years ago, I promised myself I would speak up so that others wouldn’t suffer in the same way.

Your Say

Council - Lack of action

The lack of meaningful progress and the understanding of procedures relevant to Highway Acts and Codes of Practice, by our county councillor is a sad indictment of his lack of responsibility to deliver the full range of outstanding issues.

Flooding - Better drains needed in town’s Bull Ring

I have read with interest the recent reports about the problems with flooding in the Bull Ring area of town.

Housing - Concerns over loss of agricultural land

Why, if this country is needful to produce as much home grown food as possible, is agricultural land in this county of Lincolnshire ever being thought of as suitable for concreting over and erecting more and more houses? Where are the people coming from to fill these houses?

Buses - Not everyone has a car

In this day and age, it is all too easy to forget not everyone has access to a car.

The man from Tetford was spot on in last week’s Horncastle News when he called for our councillors to do something about the shocking state of bus services.

Buses - ‘Adjustment’ to services will hit rural communities most

Tetford and Salmonby Parish Council are so concerned about the threat to supported local buses that they have initiated a residents’ travel survey; a contingency study of alternative (eg community) transport and have also written to Victoria Atkins MP asking her to urge Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) to hold a ‘full and proper’ public consultation across the county this autumn.

The councils certainly did miss a trick when they failed to act and put a bus terminus at the former NHS site off Manor House Street.

Your Say

Roadworks - A good job was done by contractors

I’m writing in regard to the article “Power to the people – but delays for cars!” in this week’s Horncastle News.

Your Say

Bus stop - No to move

Surely, the fact the bus stop is in the centre of Horncastle is the whole idea.

Your Say

Roadworks - Well done!

For once, the county council should be congratulated for planning the work on Stanhope Road to take place now. I know the traffic lights have led to delays and the diversions must be difficult for anyone living in the immediate vicinity but could you imagine if the work had not been carried out in the school holidays?
