LETTER: How will new plans work?

LETTER: How will new plans work?

I love the idea of the Worthing beach shelter being turned into a Bistro, but wouldn’t it be great if, due to the fact that many homeless people use it currently, the building company and the council clubbed together and donated some money to the Worthing Churches Homeless Projects? Just a thought!

LETTER: Referendum #2 – is it too late?

LETTER: Referendum #2 – is it too late?

The worst way to run a democracy, must be through simplistic and manipulative referenda. Even today nobody really knows what people really wanted from being in or being out of the EU.

LETTER: The benefits of Ropetackle

Adrian Towler’s suggestion (‘How to release funding’, letters, last week) that Ropetackle should pay £10,000 rent to the council which can then pay the same amount by way of grant, is patently unworkable for the simple reason that the Arts Council requires new money, and would not countenance such an obvious device.

With regard to last week’s front-page story about Ropetackle Centre funding blow, I can appreciate both points of view, having worked at arts centres and theatres in Plymouth, Hastings and Clacton-on-Sea.

LETTER: ‘Voicing strong condemnation’

The recent statement by Margaret Paren, the chairman of the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA), seeking to justify the authority’s decision to seek a judicial review of the Highways England preferred route for the proposed A27 bypass at Arundel has a very hollow ring to it.

LETTER: Centre has its act together

LETTER: Centre has its act together

I am one of many locally who are dismayed by the council’s rejection of an application for support for the Ropetackle Arts Centre and, in particular, by the dismissive tone of councillor Parkin’s comment.

LETTER: Long may our NHS continue

I wanted to use your newspaper to express my sincere gratitude to all the nursing and domestic staff for the wonderful care and compassion shown to my father, John Sanderson, during his final days in Worthing Hospital.

LETTER: No family should be in poverty

This country is not on the Victorian bread line and in a fair society there should be no families in genuine poverty.

As long-time partners with Ropetackle Arts Centre, all of us involved in Shoreham Wordfest are very sorry that they have lost the significant offer of Arts Council funding due to the lack of match funding from Adur District Council.

I would like to express my strong disagreement with the proposed development of an IKEA store in Lancing for these reasons.

Each Father’s Day, I am thankful I was one of the lucky ones. My father, Spitfire pilot Allan Scott, returned from the Second World War to continue his career in the RAF and become grandfather to my three children and, more recently, a great-grandfather for the first time.
