Letter: Restriction is a compromise

I write in response to Coun Roger Taylor’s letter about Mearclough Bridge in which he attempts to blame associated problems on Labour Party councillors and foreigners - a pretty standard retort on everything for Coun Taylor I have to say.

Letter: In praise of our recycling

I have just read another letter in The Courier bemoaning the recycling situation in Calderdale (Least they can do is say ‘sorry’ from Mary Drost, December 30). I for one am delighted by the recycling changes that were made earlier in the year.

The Pump Room before it was demolished

Letter: Make use of valuable sites

I AM appalled, whilst the council and developers quibble over planning applications for new build residential properties in Calderdale, and argue over the use of “wildlife corridors” and green belt for this purpose, there appears to be a large number of privately owned derelict properties in various stages of decay.

Weekend thought: What is Christmas really about?

When we see a nativity scene, we think of Jesus born in a stable. For many, that is where he remains and he’s remembered in the same way next year and then again the year after.
