AFTER seeing the article regarding a Bromsgrove resident’s anger at the fact the council are spending £15k of the tax payers money on a French trapeze act for the festival (April 16, Bromsgrove Advertiser), I had to write in.

I WISH to thank staff and pupils of Witton Middle School, Droitwich, for supporting my daughter in raising awareness of a genetic condition she has, Neurofibromatosis 1, a condition whereby tumours grow on nerve endings anywhere in or on the body.

ANYONE who has concerns (Letters, June 12) regarding Healthwatch has the opportunity, like all of us, to raise his views and comments at public meetings of the Acute Trust Board, the Clinical Commissioning Group Board, the County Council Health and Well Being Committee and Healthwatch itself.

PETER James Bridle of UKIP exhorts us all to be nicer to and about each other (Letters, June 11) as if the fact 500,000 unskilled British workers have been displaced since Poland joined the EU were mere coincidence and that British universities and prisons are used as recruitment grounds by Islamic extremists as a dispute in a children’s sandpit.

CONGRATULATIONS to the campaigners who petitioned Worcestershire County Council not to allow the culling of badgers on its land (“Pleas to end ‘unscientific’ TB culls on council lands”, Advertiser, May 21).

I HAVE followed with local and professional interest the debate about the continued use of The Alexandra Hospital in Redditch and the continued financial problems with the Worcestershire Acute Services NHS Trust.

THE Bromsgrove Society continues to monitor planning applications for the town and to make objections, suggestions and recommendations where appropriate, and has expressed concern about the extent of existing services and their capability of accepting any development proposals.

AS with the majority of Bromsgrove District Housing Trust sheltered housing tenants facing the total increase of £9.39 proposed to be introduced as an Enhanced Management Service charge, I am disgusted that once again the most vulnerable in society are being targeted.

I WAS very disappointed that the quite reasonable request from Bromsgrove Labour Group leader Luke Mallett that Bromsgrove District Council support his motion that a non-statutory public inquiry be held into the problems surrounding Marlbrook tip was rejected by the Tory Group.

FEBRUARY’S full Bromsgrove District Council meeting was well attended because most of the public present had come to hear councillors speak about the need for a public inquiry into years of unauthorised dumping on the Marlbrook tip.

THE letter from K Breillat, “Station needs a disabled lift”, last week, suggesting that Bromsgrove’s longawaited new train station would not include lifts to enable less able passengers access to the trains indicates some crossed lines in communications.
10:00am Monday 10th March 2014
I SEE Bromsgrove District Council, along with Worcestershire County Council, tell us that no provision will be made for the elderly and the disabled when they redevelop the railway station in Bromsgrove, namely no lift. Reason, no money?

LIKE Councillor Colella and Brian Lewis, I am fed up with the situation as described by your article (Fed-up Tories quit party, Advertiser, February 19). Like them I am a true blue – I have been all my life.

IF what we express in our opinions can be held to be an insight into our hearts and minds, it would seem fair to assess that R Manning’s nasty piece of invective (Your- View, February 19) indicates a narrow, bigoted, rather small mind, that is not capable of simple enquiry before holding forth.
