Regarding your item about there being nothing for young children in Cradley on Friday mornings, there is to my knowledge an activity for children and carers at Cradley library every Friday morning in term time.

I am not a politician nor have any loyalty to any political party, but I must take issue with James Morris MP for branding councillors ‘cheap’ for ‘making political points’ and stating he considers ‘the attack’ ‘sickening’!!

CRADLEY residents will be aware we have had repeated promises from the council of “compulsory purchase” to deal with the multi-owner, ongoing, eyesore in Colley Gate, from Colley Lane to Maple Tree Lane.

I write in response to the wrap around cover on the local Halesowen, Dudley and Stourbridge newspapers. We are being asked to vote whether we want a cut in some services or to make a choice on what rate rise we would like to impose on ourselves.

As someone who lives very near the old Cradley High School and leisure centre it seems to me, and friends and neighbours that I talk to locally, that a retirement village would be a much better proposition than ordinary housing scheme for several reasons.

James Morris’ column continues his right-wing interpretation of the economy. This is the view that, with a slight moderation in the Labour years, has dominated since 1979. In the very week of his column (October 25), Ford announced the closure of two plants with the potential loss of 1,300 jobs.

On October 7, not only were we subjected to non-stop extremely loud shouting, swearing and the noise of footballs being booted about by football clubs using Greenhill playing fields between 9.30am and 4.35pm, but also the sight of one footballer pulling up his shorts after urinating at the top of one of the gardens. Two police officers who responded to the call said they could not do anything about it since we did not see him in the actual act. Apart from Leasowes High School, which seems intent on renting this field to as many clubs on a Sunday as possible, we have Dudley planning committee to thank for this state of affairs and for making our lives such a misery. When they voted to remove Sunday restrictions it was because they said there would be no loss of amenities to local residents or the area because of increased use. If what is happening has not led to the loss of amenities for residents, who are shut up in their homes on Sundays, just what do they consider to have a detrimental effect? Why is it that neither Dudley Council, Leasowes High School, the police or anyone else show any inclination in protecting the interests and rights of homeowners and council tax payers?

I note with interest a further comment in the Halesowen News of 18th October, yet another victim of the Asda car park exit. I too have had accidents on this ramp exit with recent repairs totalling £750. Each time I visit the car park, I look to see if the car park maintenance team will have applied some sot of padding to the metal barriers, most particularly in one tight corner spot, but nothing.

The warden apparently observed the vehicle from 2.28pm. Where had he been waiting and had he not seen the collision? Why didn't he come forward to offer any assistance? I am just glad everyone else we've had to deal with was helpful and not looking to make money. − Mrs J M CantrillA helping hand would have been nice, not a parking ticket »
