On a number of occasions in the past few months we have been encouraged to put forward ideas as to what could be the future for the Winter Gardens in Yarmouth.

I read in the press and saw on television that the Winter Gardens in Great Yarmouth may be having a “make–over” if a grant can be obtained.

The 60’s was a time of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the Who. So much happened in that decade, from building a passenger aircraft that flew faster than a rifle bullet, to placing a man on the moon, but in the middle of that decade, something just as significant in many ways was taking place as young people suddenly had the ability to be who they wanted, go where they wanted and to have their own identity.

It’s good to see people flagging up concerns about the diminishing crab harvest off our coastline.

I am quite looking forward to the air show in Great Yarmouth on the seafront.

Age Connected at the Acorn Centre in Regent Street, Great Yarmouth, welcome their new Older People’s Development Worker Diane Steels.

If Great Yarmouth is to enjoy another season of an open top bus operating in the town, compared to Skegness’ approximately 17 buses in open top service, could we please revert to the comprehensive route given in its first year of operation in 2016 and not as last year of just trundling up and down the seafront.

No need to dump wood, just sell it

Hugh Sturzaker

From the aerial photo of the revamped roundabout it is easy to how accidents can occur.

One reader thinks the area of Hemsby needs more help.

Pass hospice cash to local charity

Cliff Park

I took photographs showing what I believe is the result of the imposition of charges to deposit certain goods at the recycling centre at Caister.

This picture from the Mercury’s photo archives is dated May 1960.

Lots of readers’ letters this week covering a host of subjects from coastal erosion to mobility scooters with two people on board!

There are many plants and trees that will grow near salt water, some are very environmentally friendly taking carbon out of the atmosphere.

Transformation of Yarmouth line

MIKE SPRAGG

I love travelling by train. I love the fact we pass through countryside, and see little traffic on the way - and there are no dual carriageways.

Mini-revival in the town is welcomed

I’m a member of the Civic Society of Great Yarmouth; there, I’ve said it. I admit it.

“Goodbye eye.” These were among the last words I muttered to myself as the world’s leading ophthalmic surgeons sent me to sleep in Moorfields Eye Hospital.
