SIR — On behalf of the West Somerset Talking Newspaper, I would like to thank the Free Press for all the help it gives our organisation throughout the year.
SIR — In the event of the A39 being closed, Cllr Rosemary Woods (Free Press December 6) suggests highways chiefs should consider implementing a one-way system, with traffic travelling towards Minehead going via Washford and Roadwater and coming back onto the A39 from the Withycombe turning.
SIR — This is to thank all traders of Minehead surroundings who still display old fashioned Christmas lights - or at least keep them stationary - rather than the fast pulsating ones or piercing laser type lights.
SIR — As chairman of Minehead’s Chamber of Commerce, can I thank all our shopkeepers who remained open last Friday evening.
SIR — I am writing regarding the proposed axing of the 100 Minehead bus.
SIR — Some things are so predictable - day following night, colder weather in the autumn and winter, and people finding something to moan about.
SIR — Several local issues have recently highlighted the way the need for sustainability is being ignored when approving new developments.
SIR — It appears that Somerset County Council seems to ignore any advice from whatever source regarding important transport issues that seriously affect West Somerset.
SIR — Once again we are experiencing the aftermath of an illegal and irresponsible act of laziness and stupidity by (probably) the crew of one of the many ships which ply the Bristol Channel.
SIR — The recent suffering of West Somerset people caused by the closure of our arterial road, the A39, forcibly reminds us how little investment there has been in the West Somerset road structure since the last war.
SIR — The latest proposal by Somerset County Council to withdraw the subsidy for the 106 bus between Minehead, Blue Anchor, Watchet and Doniford, plus the Minehead town service (Free Press November 15) will very badly affect local people, particularly pensioners and the disabled on low incomes as well as those relying on these services to get to their work, school, college or hospital etc.
