I must say I am dismayed at the actions of Redditch Council blocking roads to stop Mr Wilson setting up his funfair in the town. What a miserable lot they are. We used to be able to enjoy ourselves in Redditch.

We were appalled to learn that the local showmen have been prevented from setting up the funfair in the town centre. The Wilsons have, for generations, held a funfair in the town centre for a week in September. In the past the fair has been sited around the church green, the top of Unicorn Hill, Royal Yard and Alcester Street.

When are the CCG’s , NHS England and the Worcester Hospital Trust going to admit the University of Birmingham Hospital Trust’s option for the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch was never going to be looked at, as it would take money away from paying towards an expensive white elephant that was built in Worcester.

CAN anyone explain to me how our local libraries have been able to increase their borrowing charges by such astronomical amounts? As a regular borrower of spoken word CDs, I have been faced with a 33 per cent increase.

COUNCILLOR Michael Webb’s Jewel in the Crown has a major flaw which will reduce participation in community sport. How can this be a sensible plan for the future of the Dolphin Centre when the population of Bromsgrove is increasing and the need for sports facilities has never been greater?

MANY parents, pupils and teachers in Redditch schools are rightly concerned about the proposed change to the age range at Tudor Grange Redditch, Ridgeway Middle School and two first schools, changes which would undermine the existing three-tier system.

I READ with disgust that a Redditch man found with drugs and an offensive weapon (Redditch & Alcester Advertiser, June 25) escaped a jail term despite being on a suspended sentence. The reason for this? Because he was 20.

I was really pleased to read your article saying that Labour shadow health secretary Andy Burnham actually went to Worcester and experienced the difficulties that anyone having to use the Worcester Royal Hospital incurs.

AS an Alcester resident, I recently received the local Conservative ‘In Touch’ magazine, which states “… over the next few years we will likely see further development in Alcester”. How can this be justified?

ACCORDING to Redditch MP Karen Lumley, making a child inhale what she herself called “dangerous second-hand smoke” is as she puts it, “an unnecessary private matter with which the state should not be concerned”. So let’s take it that the state should not be concerned when it foots the bill to treat the child’s damaged lungs in the years to come, shall we Karen?
