How can we be sure the new plan will be carried through?

I REFER to the letter from Cllr Philip Sanders printed in the Times recently.

Saying ‘not here’ is not sufficient

I SEE that 104 people have signed a petition against the current coach park in Mill Road.

Helping CLIC Sargent in 2015

JANUARY is often a time of planning and setting ambitious goals for the year ahead.

Every penny helps the animals

ANOTHER year has gone by and in the past year lots of dogs and cats have been rehomed from Wingletang and have found their forever home.

All comments on Our Plan will be taken into account

IN light of the letters and articles that have been carried in the Times over recent weeks concerning West Devon’s ‘Our Plan’, I feel it is important that your readers understand where we currently are with the process.

Issuing thanks for all the support

ON behalf of Yelverton and District Friends Group of Children’s Hospice South West I would like to thank Rob Fitzsimmons and staff of Bidders for inviting us to hold a collection at Yelverton forecourt on December 22/24.

Requesting help with viaduct investigation

AFTER a good response to the feature in the Times regarding the 50th Anniversary of the destruction of Walkham Viaduct, I write again to request more help.

Volunteers needed

THE Roots to Transition volunteers would like to thank the kind people of Tavistock who responded to our plea for a water butt to replace the one that had been vandalised at the Rose Walk.

Please make a special resolution

I WOULD like to take this opportunity to thank all of your readers who have supported the work of the NSPCC during the last year.

Help needed with a family tree

I DECIDED to re-visit my family tree as none of us are getting any younger.

Make a New Year resolution to bring a story to life

THIS New Year we are asking readers to make a resolution to  be more fun!

Have a heart DCC!

I FIRMLY believe that Devon County Council has lost the plot! I refer to their proposal (Times, December 11) that we should all fund our own winter road grit.

Very many thanks . . .

THANK you to all my friends for the unexpected cake, cheque and gifts presented to me on December 18 from traders and the Tavistock branch of the National Market Traders’ Federation on my retirement from my stall in the Pannier Market.

An amazing town!

WHAT an amazing town we live in! On Wednesday, December 17, Okehampton United Charity and Okehampton Educational Foundation held an open evening in the Pavilion to celebrate the achievements of many local groups and individuals.

Army friend

DUE to an editing oversight, the report of ‘Carols for the Community’, published in the December 18 edition of the Times, failed to mention Mr Geoffrey Cox MP, who also took part.

Stocks, pillory and the birch

HAVING heard about the Christmas tree in Bodmin being vandalised and now seen that the huge windows to what used to be the Red Rooster cafe in Okehampton have been mindlessly smashed, is it not time that we re-introduced the stocks, the pillory and the birch? R Reynolds Bridestowe
