Be aware of dangers during holidays

Throughout the summer holidays, I would like to make your readers aware of the risks our children face as they potentially spend more time online – and offer some tips on how to keep them safe.

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

We are heading rapidly towards the annual festive spendathon - for many it has already begun - and with everyone feeling so hard-pressed at the moment I’ve no doubt that finding the cash for presents is going to be harder than ever.
It’s so tempting to buy the same mass produced rubbish that everyone is giving their relatives this year.
I know that I have been guilty of buying umpteen plastic trinkets that are no doubt now rotting away in pieces on a rubbish tip somewhere half way across the Atlantic.
However, this year I’m determined to buy something worthwhile that might last beyond January.
And one of the best ways to do that is visit an independent retailer.
They are much more likely to have products that will last longer, mean more to their recipient and by supporting local businesses you are helping to inject more cash into the town’s economy. So when you hit the shops this year make sure you take in some locally owned and run shops and help spread the Christmas joy further where we live.

Once again, on Remembrance Day, the nation has had the opportunity to salute the ultimate sacrifice and sterling acts of heroism shown by the citizens of the UK, the Commonwealth and beyond, who served our nation during both World Wars and the more recent conflicts.

LETTER: Show cyclists more respect on roads

Research has shown mobility scooters were involved in 200 accidents in 2016, nine of which were fatal, e.g. Labour peer Lord Thomas Taylor of Blackburn, who died after a collision with a van outside Parliament.

LETTER: Accept we are leaving and get on with it

LETTER: Accept we are leaving and get on with it

I read with some sadness at what I feel were misleading and incorrect comments in the letters page from your reader in Bolsover regarding Brexit, and would like to put the matters straight.
The ‘lies’ he mentioned were not handed out by the ‘leave’ party, just consider the doom and gloom from the remainers, Messrs Blair, Cameron, Branson and a host of other self interested persons threatening our future, which didn’t materialise.
