Letter: Recreation - At our wits’ end over nuisance

As a resident of Jennyfields for over 11 years, I have lived in the area and use the fields near the Hydro for dog walking, teaching my children to use play equipment and to use the general facilities.

Your Say
Harrogate Grammar School. (091006GS5)

Letter: Education - We have no plans to reduce staff

Letter: Greenway - Dog owners need to be responsible

Letter: Greenway - Dog owners need to be responsible

Over the last few years Sustrans have repeatedly tried to sign the Greenway to ensure that it is safe and pleasant for all users.

Your Say
Letter: Waste collection - I can’t justify annual charge

Letter: Waste collection - I can’t justify annual charge

We do not generate sufficient garden waste to warrant putting the bin out every two weeks. During any previous year I estimate that the most times have been five occasions during any 39 week collection service period.

Your Say

In response to the Point of View in last week’s Advertiser, we fully appreciate resident’s concerns about noise from the showground and work hard to minimise disruption to the local community

The Stray

Letter: The Stray - No ‘carte blanche’ for the council

Like Peter Whiteley (Advertiser, May 11) I was impressed by the way HBC managed the Tours de Yorkshire and France.

Your Say
Letter: Recycling - Flat rate tax is unacceptable

Letter: Recycling - Flat rate tax is unacceptable

Because of “austerity” imposed by central government and vanity projects such as new council buildings, it is understandable why Harrogate Council has had to impose a charge on recycling garden waste.

I was delighted to see the Advertiser’s announcement (May 4, 2017) that it is joining forces with other newspaper titles around the country to fight hoax news stories.

Letter: Voting system - Election shows need for change

Letter: Voting system - Election shows need for change

My current intention is to disregard the advice of my Conservative Parliamentary candidate, Andrew Jones, when placing my vote. His view, as I understand it, is that one should vote for the candidate or party one would prefer to see win, without trying to guess their respective chances of actually doing so.

Letter: Surely there must be a better venue than this

I have nothing against guns or shooting.

It is simple: too much demand for available capacity results in congestion.

Your Say
Another Mother's Son.

Letter: Programmers in London - take note!

Further to the letter from your correspondent last week, we too searched in vain in the listings of the Harrogate Odeon and Everyman cinemas for the Another Mother’s Son film which had received such good reviews.

Your Say
Letter: Highways - Too many sets of needless lights

Letter: Highways - Too many sets of needless lights

Once again, NYCC’s unhealthy and ineffective obsession with traffic lights is raised (Advertiser, April 27).

Your Say 1
Letter: Environment - No defence over hedgerows row

I thank this newspaper for publishing the behaviour of Persimmon Homes in destroying a long length of hedgerow along the southern end of their Penny Pot Lane housing development.
