Please show support for Big Heart Day

WHEN I first saw a photograph of the little girl who was to become my daughter, she leapt straight into my heart.

My letter was pruned . . .

I SEEM to have upset at least two people very much, one of them said that it was difficult to understand.

I just wish someone would get on with it

YOUR correspondent Rodney Smith’s letter (Times, May 6) was difficult to understand.

Bridge colour is fine . . .

SO, Cllr Kevin Ball has received ‘several’ complaints over the colour of the bridge? I guess that is because it doesn’t suit another’s taste and is the only reason why this discussion is happening? I wish people and councillors in particular would get a grip sometimes and concentrate on more important things.

A line west of Okehampton should connect to North Cornwall . . .

THERE is no doubt the ongoing furore about the Devon and Cornwall railways was caused by the major storm damage a couple of years ago to the railway line at Dawlish.

Take to the skies for charity

THE British Heart Foundation (BHF) is urging people in Devon to take to the skies and fight back against the single biggest killer in the UK.

Thanks for your support

AS president as the Okehampton Rotary Club, I should like to thank everyone who attended our recent May Fair in Simmons Park.

Is it coeliac disease?

COELIAC UK is the national charity for people with coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis.

Collectors raised an amazing total sum

THE Rotary Club of Yelverton was lucky to be granted a licence to collect in support of those affected by the earthquake in Nepal at the Parade Shops, Yelverton, on May 1.

Thanks from the hospice

THE fundraising team from Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), local charity partner for the recent Plymouth Half Marathon, would like to thank everyone who ran the Plymouth Half Marathon on April 19 in aid of the children’s charity.

An appeal for runners

ON behalf of The Children’s Trust, I would like to make an urgent appeal to running enthusiasts, who would like to take part in the Great North Run 2015 on Sunday, September 13.

Do you have the right shoes?

WHILE enjoying our day out at the May Fair in Okehampton, my five-year-old son had fun on the large unflatable slide.

A monstrous eyesore

THE Fatherford Bridge is a monstrous eyesore completely out of keeping with its environment, its main problems being design and colour.

A huge tragedy for a poor nation

I WAS sitting in my room reading at about midday yesterday, waiting for a cake to finish cooking, when everything began to shake.

Praise for the NHS

HAVING recently spent a few days in the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Wonford), I would like to say that my treatment throughout has been first class.

Remembering VE Day . . .

THE Royal British Legion, Tavistock Branch, will be holding a short service of remembrance at the town’s War Memorial on Friday, May 8 at 11am, on the 70th anniversary of VE Day.

An autobiography next?

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed Mr Sherell’s skit again this week.
