SIR — Having waited for the inevitable failure of the proposed new supermarket complex in Williton, I was not surprised in the least to see the plan shot down in flames by the local council.
SIR – I was gratified to read your short piece on the Dunster Station vintage bus link (Free Press May 3) and I thank you for the publicity, which will do much to encourage our visitors to make use of this facility.
SIR — We farm on the Brendon Hills, and have been custodians for this land for 45 years.
SIR — Further to the letter from Cllr Chris Morgan (Free Press May 3), I fear he is right to point out that West Somerset suffers whether Hinkley C proceeds or not.
SIR — Local Government cutbacks have resulted in many visually impaired people no longer being able to receive our free volunteer service, which offers help with many day to day issues including help with attending appointments, shopping and regular friendship and support.
SIR — May I through your paper thank the Watchet and District Choral Society and all those who attended their recent performances of Faure’s Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine.
SIR — At the recent Exmoor Society Spring Conference “Exmoor’s Rivers”, a large audience enjoyed a whole series of very good talks.
SIR — As there are often letters of appreciative thanks for money collected or time given for charities or youth clubs on your letters page, may I also add mine, but on a slightly different theme.
SIR — During a chance conversation with strangers, it emerged that they had recently completed a holiday to the Derbyshire Dales, their 25th in as many years.
SIR — Living in the westernmost house in Williton parish - the boundary is a corner of our dining room - I was a bit surprised to find from last week’s issue that the parish council had been discussing hiving us off to the parish of Old Cleeve.
SIR — This is a letter to the one or two selfish people who are allowing their dogs to use the area in Porlock known as The Drang as a place to let their dogs foul unseen.
SIR — Further to John Clyde-Smith’s letter (Free Press April 19) concerning the public toilets on Minehead seafront, I would like to clarify the position regarding the provision of the toilet facilities at the railway station.
SIR — In response to your report “Flag at half mast” (Free Press April 19) following the Minehead Town Council meeting on Tuesday April 16, the Mayor of Minehead Town Council Cllr Tony Berry introduced an item of flying the Union Jack at half mast in line with protocol in respect of the death of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
SIR — Elsewhere in your paper [see page 5] there may be a photo of Kelly Creech, of Porlock, presenting a cheque for a large amount of money which is to be shared between Jean Cox, on behalf of a dementia charity, and Culbone Church.
