Have your say

From: Frances Moreton, War Memorials Trust Director.

RE your letter (Yorkshire Post, December 15) about the repair of war memorials.

I would like to take the opportunity to remind your readers about War Memorials Trust, the national charity that works to protect and conserve war memorials in the UK. Anyone concerned about the condition of a memorial is welcome to contact the trust, or visit our website, to get advice about repair and conservation now.

The trust provides a range of support and information on war memorial issues and runs grant schemes that can assist local communities preserve their war memorials for future generations.

Hospital views

From: P Doyle, Wakefield Road, Pontefract.

THE people of Pontefract and Castleford have been urged to submit their views on the demise of hospital care facilities at the new Pontefract Hospital.

It is to be hoped that such views will form the basis of an urgent demand for a full and proper public inquiry into the ever failing Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust and the role played by the brigade of prima donna consultants at its helm.

In a jam

From: Iain Morris, Caroline Street, Saltaire, Bradford.

LEEDS residents may well be disappointed over a delay to a decision on funding for their trolley bus scheme, but it is the former largest trolley bus authority in the country, Bradford, which has the most congested roads and streets in England after London and Manchester and is the 11th worst gridlocked city in Europe.
