Anne Lister

Letter: I’m so looking foward to Anne Lister drama

On reading David Behrens’ excellent report of Sally Wainwright’s forthcoming series on Anne Lister of Shibden Hall (Courier, March 17), it brought to mind Helena Whitbread’s book I know my own Heart (published 1988) where Helena had painstakingly transcribed the selection of Anne Lister’s diaries and her life story (1791-1840), the code entries having taken her two years to unravel.

Brighouse Library

Letter: Time to think about who we put in power?

It was interesting to read an article by Coun Scott Benton’s (Leader of the Conservative Party). His remarks could have set alarm bells off, for some of us. Now this may not be a bad thing, as apathy is dangerous.

What do you hope for in your lives? Many people are hoping for a change in their circumstances.

Coffee Cali, Woolshops, Halifax.

Letter: Coffee price rise is excessive

I visit Halifax on a very regular basis, mainly because here is a ‘gem’ of a shopping centre, much better than Bradford, even with the new Broadway Shopping Centre that took very many years in the making.

View over Halifax from Beacon Hill

Letter: Welcome to an uncertain world
