I’m writing to thank your readers for taking part in the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Bag It. Beat It. campaign throughout September, helping to generate over 1 million bags of quality items nationwide for BHF shops and raise awareness of women and heart disease.
Wouldn’t it be a far better idea, instead of spending billions on HS2, to spend some of that money on small bypasses at many small towns and villages all over the UK that are being strangled by having two A roads intersect at their position?
This week many people across Lincolnshire will be finding out that they have sadly missed out on the 2017 London Marathon ballot. Prospective runners who have been looking forward to taking part will be disappointed to find out they haven’t secured a place in this hugely iconic race.
I have read with interest the comments that you (Coun Richard Fry) have made in the local press concerning the proposed Horncastle bypass. I detect a certain posturing between Lincolnshire County Council and East Lindsey District Council rather than trying to work together to find a solution to the traffic problem.
