If reports in the local media are true, then it looks as if the residents of South Fenland have another ‘war’ on our hands over services at Doddington Hospital. It can be won, but it needs the public’s support.

Should adverts be removed?

Sometime ago the local council decided advertising along the A47 and other routes through our borough must be stopped as it was decided it was a danger – so local businesses lost good advertising sites and our farmers a little income.

I am a citizen of the EU. I rent a house in Wisbech. My landlord tells me my rent goes up £20 a month to pay for the new ‘selective licence’. He does the same thing with all tenants – 10 houses, rent goes up.

‘Complacent clap-trap’

I read with interest the article “On The Beat” written by Ch Insp Mike Hills (Citizen, March 23). I have rarely read such a collection of complacent, self-congratulatory claptrap! I have a few suggestions and phrases that Mike Hills might take to heart in the future conduct of his job.

I am pleased to see the use of hand-held radar speed cameras as the first line of defence for local community speed watch groups. These groups are vital in obtaining the initial statistics to show councils that issues exist.
