My option would be a massive flyover

HERE we go again with traffic management and ‘management’ in general in Okehampton.

Walking 10,000 steps

I’M marking International Women’s Day (March 8) by committing to walk 10,000 steps a day for a week, in solidarity with women worldwide.

A brave and honest stand . . .

WELL done Stephen Cook for taking such a brave and honest stand on unwholesomeness in so-called relationships and for spelling out the Godly alternatives so clearly.

Thanks for your generous support

I WOULD like to say a big thank you to all those people who have supported the Okehampton fund raising group for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research over the past year.

Market forces and multi-nationals will decide our future energy use

I RESPOND to Ishbel Askew’s letter (Times, February 5).

Please show support for the ‘Big Step Forward’

ON behalf of the Down’s Syndrome Association, I would like to invite your readers to take part in the ‘Big Step Forward’ on March 22.

Can nothing be done about speeding drivers?

THE appalling accident on Saturday, February 7 on the A386 near Mary Tavy proves yet again the total disregard that many motorists show on that main road.


TO ease the traffic on the main Exeter Road/East Street I suggest that the restriction presently at the junction of North Street/Northfield Road be removed along with the island on the south side.

We can all do our bit

AS the hedgerows have died back and received their winter trims a new harvest has been revealed — litter.

It is short-sighted to use rail route as a political football

WHILE I am a resident of Plymouth, I am technical advisor to PRG and Destination Okehampton and I felt I had to write to comment on some of the statements being made regarding our railways.

Invest in the future —give it up now!

LAST week I had a ‘transient ischematic attack’ while watching TV with the wife.

There is no perfect solution

COUNTERING Bob Rush’s enthusiasm for scrapping renewable targets (letters, Times, January 29), I’d like to ask how he proposes reducing the threat of manmade climate change, now acknowledged as one of the biggest we are facing, and how we’re using up our energy resources at the expense of future generations? The recent reduction in gas and oil prices undermines global efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

Bus service cuts will hit pensioners and the poorest in town

LAST week you printed a positive Stagecoach advert telling us of the improved bus service from Okehampton to Exeter.

Thanks for supporting the digital campaign

ON behalf of the trustees, staff and volunteers of the Plough Arts Centre, Torrington, I would like to send our heartfelt and sincere thanks to all supporters, friends and customers who have so kindly helped fund our recent campaign to enable our cinema to ‘Go Digital’! The completed installation has just been signed off and the Plough now boasts a state of the art digital projector and associated screen and sound system.
