Letter: Breast feeding - More help is needed

In response to breastfeeding story, I feel that your article on the closure of La Leche breastfeeding groups didn’t fully explain the huge blow to mums (and babies) in our area.

Letter: Harrogate Council - Let’s be clear on what is meant for Valley Gardens

Having expressed my views in your letters page concerning Streat Food Festival and large events in general in the Valley Gardens, I can only look forward now, with fear and foreboding, as to what Harrogate Borough Council has in store for the Gardens in 2017.

Letter: Restaurants - Unsustainable level of growth

It was interesting to read the article on the Yorkshire Meatball Company (Harrogate Advertiser, September 15) and their positive outlook despite the unending influx of national dining chains which are changing the face of Harrogate.

Letter: Valley Gardens - Please move the Streat Festival

Reading Coun Cooper’s letter (Harrogate Advertiser, September 15) in response to the complaints about the StrEat Food Festival, I could not tell whether he thought the council had made the right decision or not in allowing the festival to happen in Valley Gardens.

Letter: Harrogate College - College plans will put strain on Harrogates infrastructure

It appears that when Harrogate Borough Council’s planning department asks for comments on proposed developments, the views of those commenting are ignored and those developing a site can start work, even before their application has even been considered.

The entrance to the Harrogate Turkish baths.

Letter: Discriminatory practice at Turkish Baths

Talk about adding insult to injury. The sheer gall of Coun Stanley Lumley (Advertiser, September 8) in claiming that the reinstatement of men-only bathing sessions at Harrogate’s Turkish Baths adds “another string to the bow” for Harrogate Council’s spa-related services is quite breathtaking.

Letter: Valley Gardens - Trashed by events

I returned from Valley Gardens with a heavy heart feeling every bit as demoralised as the gardeners who were dealing with the damage and the mountains of rubbish bags left behind by the four day Streat Food Festival over the Bank Holiday weekend.
