It appears to me, and I may be wrong, that both the Retro Skate and indoor bowls people are not going to be catered for in the new Marina complex.

Personally, I am getting wholeheartedly fed up with the constant letters to the Mercury concerning Brexit.

I read in disbelief about the potential five-year delay in road improvements to the Acle Straight due to a five-year study required by Highways England to see if the five millimetre diameter “Whirlpool Ramshorn Snail” has settled in its new home.

Reader Letters

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.

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.

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

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.

Where will the churchgoers park?

One of our readers isn’t entirely sure the money needed to dual the A47 couldn’t be better spent elsewhere.
