Roundabout and lights are no-go

JACK DYE

Brandon Lewis has done very well for himself, it is time now for him to take on board the broken promises when the Tory-led council gave away our £20m grant that should have boughtnot just an Outer Harbour but a ferry service.

The poor are only just managing

CHRIS WRIGHT

I am now working on a book about the history of the railway at Reedham and Berney Arms. I wonder if any of your readers may have worked on the railway, or have relatives who have worked on the railway at Reedham, and have old photographs, or 
have a story to tell, which they would like to share in the 
book.

Why no mention of town bus links?

JUDITH A DANIELS

I agree something needs to be done about what is called in your newspaper “Asbo alleyway” last week.

I read the article last week about the former Empire Theatre being ripe for conversion into an outpost Tate Gallery with wonder.

There should be a larger road sign telling drivers there is no access along King Street (Clark’s shoe shop corner) and into Regent Street in Yarmouth.

We have allowed our town to fade

MIKE SPRAGG

This week, Monday, I had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of the plaque on the house on Pavilion Road, Gorleston to honour Coxswain Wm Fleming.

As a person who has lived in Yarmouth all my life I think it’s a shame the town has been let to run down over the years.

Thanks to two who helped me

Danger drive to London recalled

It is rumoured that Norfolk County Council are looking in the latest spending round to maybe cut subsidies for local bus services.

I fear the shenanigans at that beautiful house Koolunga in Gorleston will result in it being demolished.

Travelling on the top deck of the X1 towards Great Yarmouth behind a slow moving tractor and trailer recently I was amazed to see a gathering of 17 little egrets next to a shallow dyke near the rail line.

A blue “heritage” plaque to commemorate the famous Gorleston lifeboat coxswain, William G. Fleming GC, awarded RNLI bronze, silver and gold medals will be unveiled on No 11 Pavilion Road, Gorleston, where he lived whilst serving as coxswain, will be unveiled on Monday, October 23, at 11am.
