The Stray. Montpellier (NADV 1701093AM1)

Letter: Consultation - The council is still not clear

As we near the end of the ‘consultation period’ about the future of Harrogate’s Stray I really do feel it is about time that people knew precisely what the Harrogate Council are proposing. Regrettably I do not feel that this has been made clear.

The Stray. West Park (NADV 1701093AM4)

Letter: Stray - Just get rid of the ‘dross’ events

What is a week? Well, a minute is 60 consecutive seconds, an hour is 60 consecutive minutes, a day is 24 consecutive hours and, yes, a week is seven consecutive days.But, though the Harrogate Stray Act says that the Stray shall not be inclosed for more than five weeks in the year, the council interpret this as any 35 days.

Letter: Value the skills of care workers

Letter: Value the skills of care workers

In response to your Behind the Headlines special report ‘Crisis in care as services reach tipping point’ (Advertiser, December 8). My background is in social care and I have worked in both direct care, training and management. I agree strongly with the initial early concerns about the reforms and in particular the worries around recruiting staff.

Harrogate train station  (1401205AM1)

Letter: Trains - Please explain what is going on?

When is a Pacer train not a Pacer? When it’s scrapped surely - and weren’t we clearly promised that they would all be gone within three years when Arriva took over from Northern?

The Save the Crimple Valley Campaign highlights a fundamental weakness in Planning Policy which is creating problems everywhere.

Letter: Night marshals - Bars should contribute

Letter: Night marshals - Bars should contribute

In reply to Mr Allen (Letters, December 29 - Bedroom tax to pay for night marshals) – yes at first blush a nominal fee of 20p added to each room night would not be prohibitive – however that is not all of the cost,

Members of the Band with Dawn, M&S Manager, Harrogate

Letter: A heartfelt thanks from The Harrogate Band

Over the year we have supported nine charities to raise thousands of pounds for good causes including Barnardos, The British Legion and the Harrogate Easy Living Project. In total over £300,000 has been raised in the events the band has performed at. We couldn’t do this without the generous donations we’ve received from people this year when we’ve played Christmas carols in M&S. We’d also like to thank the fabulous staff at M&S.

Knaresborough High Street.  (140117M2c)

Letter: Congestion - These problems easily solved

It is funny how little things can cause big problems. Two seemingly small issues, delivery wagons outside Tesco and Connexions buses stopping opposite the bus station, cause disproportionate problems in Knaresborough.

Your Say
Better service on the Leeds - Harrogate - York lines would give clear benefits to Harrogate.

Letter: Trains - New proposals are inferior

After all the hard work by Brian Dunsby to establish a case for a rail service combining both intercity and an enhanced speedy local service, this ‘flexible’ tram train proposal is a major setback, offering no advantages whatsoever in speed, frequency or quality of ‘trains’.
