LETTER: Network Rail, not Southern...

I was disappointed that yet again one of your readers has been unable to grasp the difference between a train operating company (TCO), in this case Southern Railway, and the infrastructure company, Network Rail.

LETTER: Who needs the real Olympics?

Who needs to go to South Korea when we have our very own ‘Winter Olympics’?

Your Say

LETTER: Requested improvements?

So I was mistaken, John Hughes has now made it clear that he thinks people living alongside the main road through Worthing should take precedence over ‘the many tens of thousands from many parts of the country who suffer hold ups through the north of the town’.

LETTER: Here’s a plan for grass verges...

In a Herald story headed ‘Residents raise concerns over nine new homes proposed in Lancing’, a local resident was quoted as saying that parking has become increasingly problematic, often with verge and footway parking being the only options for residents.

LETTER: Situation not cool and clinical

When people read about ‘death on request’ and ‘doctor-assisted suicide’ as Sir Peter Bottomley puts it in his article (February 8), they will get the idea that in my country people just ask to be killed and that their death wish is granted without much ado. Like ordering a beer in a pub.

LETTER: Helpful and considerate

I can appreciate the recent comments about the problems associated with road closures for the half marathon.

LETTER: Memories of ‘Saltings Bridge’

Pauline Harnett (Opinion, February 1) is not the only one who recalls a suggestion for a new bridge from the A259 across the Saltings.

LETTER: No wonder colds and flu spread

It’s not surprising that we have rampant cold and flu epidemics.

LETTER: Waiting for the right to vote

I am surprised that you should publish false news but I believe that it is fashionable.

LETTER: Litter tends to attract litter

Congratulations to the lady who highlighted the increasing litter problem in Worthing and for taking the matter literally into her own hands. Apart from being unsightly and unhygienic, litter tends to attract litter in certain areas.

LETTER: ‘Worthing is my home’

Some of my best memories came from Worthing, and while I know that sounds contrived, it couldn’t be more true. I remember spending weeks here as a child, seeing shows with my grandma at the Pavilion, endless walks along the parade, and summers spent on pier.

LETTER: Other festivals are available...

What a pleasure it was to read your recent headline of the cancellation of the hugely unpopular music festival, although your reporter preferred the quote from the airport’s director (motivated by profit) rather than that of the local authority leader (motivated by democracy).

LETTER: No surprise over cutting of fund

It should be no surprise that the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne has decided to cut Worthing’s Community Safety Partnership funding by an unprecedented 44 per cent.

Will you be renewing your green bin collection?

LETTER: Increase due to RPI, or RIP-off?

Can Adur & Worthing Councils explain why the charge for the green bin collection has risen for the next year by 14.29 per cent, since the waste collected becomes compost, which the councils sell at a profit?

LETTER: Redeveloping cinema, or not?

In October the Herald published a letter from me, under the heading ‘Great news for former cinema’, in which I welcomed the news that the former Luxor cinema in Lancing was to be converted from its present neglected condition into 12 flats and a shop.

With several others, I am trying to find information, especially photos, about a pub called The Gardeners Arms in Wick Street, Littlehampton.

LETTER: Plans: ‘horror and anger’

The news that plans for yet another eight or nine-storey, 136-flats development have been submitted for consideration filled me with horror and anger.

LETTER: Road closure not a closure...

Firstly, may I congratulate the organisers of the Worthing Half Marathon for organising the best weather we have had in Worthing for some time.

LETTER: Great value for money!

Thank you for an excellent and factual story on the Littlehampton Town Council budget for the coming year.

LETTER: Nothing further from the truth

In his letter ‘If no bypass, then a flyover’ (Herald, February 8), Chris Gould somehow asserts from my letter published on Thursday, February 1 – and copied below – that I am in favour of flyovers along the A27.
