Environment - Green awards

I was fortunate enough to spend much of my childhood outside – from making mud pies with friends to exploring the countryside with my parents. My love for nature and the environment is something I now share with my own children.

Hall - Community divided

The Horncastle News has a long tradition of articles about the Mareham le Fen ‘village hall’. In 1919 and 1921 two articles were published reporting on the fundraising and opening of the Mareham le Fen War Memorial Parish Hall.

Dog fouling - Lack of space

The reason the incidents of dog fouling have increased on the Woodhall Spa cricket pitch is due to Waterloo Housing building on the land at the end of Alexandra Road.

I am writing to you in regard to the recent article about the problems of dog-fouling in Woodhall Spa and, in particular, on the cricket club outfield.

This is not a problem with Queen Street alone.

Easter: Diabetics can enjoy chocolate too - in moderation

Easter is a time for family, friends and, of course, chocolate.

Bank closure - Define busy

As a retired bank clerk, I read with interest about the closure of another Horncastle bank. Whilst sympathising with the concerns of customers, I feel the term ‘busy’ sadly does not necessarily equate with ‘profitable’, and the bottom line is that nowadays profit is what it’s all about.

Pain - Exercise helps

According to a recent survey from Arthritis Research UK, half of people who have or have had joint pain avoid doing exercise. The joint pain puts them off. As a person who has lived with joint pain for some while, I find this worrying.

Horses - Consider animal welfare

The Grand National course still presents the kind of perversely hazardous challenge to which no horse should be subjected.

Imminent UK cuts to mothers’ tax credits are an assault on women’s human rights

Crossing - Proposed site would cause chaos

I could not agree more with the letter in last week’s Horncastle News about the problem with putting a pedestrian crossing in the Bull Ring.

There’s no need for lights

I can walk round the village where my parents live with no street lights; I’d walk round Horncastle with no street lights too.

Hospital - Great service

May I echo the sentiments expressed by two readers on your letters page (March 1) on the treatment and care received from all the staff at Boston Pilgrim, both clinical and support staffs.

Lights - Inadequate

With the road to the swimming pool and bowls centre having speed bumps, you would expect lighting to be switched on at night time as surely this is a hazard.

Support - Help to make life easier for carers

6.5 million people in the UK care, unpaid, for a disabled, older or ill family member or friend.

Lights - Plan ahead

Not being awkward, but, we have no street lighting where I live.

Water - Apology from Anglian Water

A burst water main near Asterby, and our Flint Hill water tower, left many homes in the Wolds without water, or with only low pressure, last week. The damaged section of water pipe was directly under the River Bain, which made finding the problem more challenging. It also meant that repairing it was a significant engineering challenge.

Increases: Prices going up

Along with an increase in the green bin collection, also our electric suppliers’ prices have gone up, yet all wages or benefits stay the same.

Parking: Concern for access

I write in response to the article regarding parking issues on Bowl Alley Lane and Tudor Park – this is nothing new.
