The letter published on behalf of John Cartledge (‘Policy is cause of this crisis’, Your Views, September 30), is a shameful attempt to demonise sectarian education by linking this right of choice with the incompetence of the politicians of yester year.

The “transport crisis” faced by Hertsmere Jewish Primary School (‘School facing transport crisis’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, September 23) is the product of failures in both planning and education policies.

Regarding the planning application submitted to add two additional retail outlets to the shopping park, I would like to offer my support to Caroline Cooney and the residents of Clarendon Road (‘No through road’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, September 23).

I was sad to hear of the passing away of Barbara Cass last week. She was the wife of Pat Cass and between them they did so much for this community and indeed won an award from Hertsmere Borough Council for their hard work. They were two of the most respected people in Borehamwood.

Regarding the meeting of residents at the Three Ways Community Centre (‘Political rivals clash over social club bar’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, September 16), Morris Bright has once again missed the point.
1:11pm Friday 16th September 2011
The article that appeared in last week’s Borehamwood & Elstree Times stated the Three Ways Community Centre received funding in 1999 from Hertsmere Borough Council to run a community centre and bar. (‘Outrage at poor turnout,’ September 9.) The Three Ways Community Association has never received funding from any source to provide its vital and much needed leisure and entertainment services for the residents of Borehamwood.

We are looking for volunteers to help at Borehamwood Seniors Club which meets every day at Fountain Court Brooke Road Borehamwood from 10am to 3pm. Around ten to 15 senior citizens meet daily to chat, do various activities and have lunch. We need volunteers to support the paid worker so that users can achieve the maximum benefit. We know that people are very busy with their own lives and that many do already give their time on a voluntary basis but we do need help. If you can only give one morning or afternoon a month to go on a rota that is fine. If you would like to know more or feel you can help please contact one of the local councillors who are on the committee at the civic offices in Borehamwood, who are: Councillor Ann Harrison, Councillor Di Hoeksma, Councillor Sandra Parnell and Councillor Pat Strack.

In response to the letter ‘Centre must be open to all’ (Your Views, July 8) regarding the closure of Three Ways Community Centre, I have emailed the council the below with no reply (surprise surprise). Maybe this letter will prompt a response?

Josh Darlington reported the praise for our MP on his performance before the Home Affairs Select Committee investigating the ongoing News of the World scandal (‘Hacking inquiry’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, July 22).

From July 31, Hertsmere Borough Council is cutting one-hour free parking in front of the shops in Watling Street, Radlett, to half-an-hour and introducing a charge of 20 pence for an hour in an attempt to speed up the turnover of cars.

I have just read your the article (‘Market to shut up shop’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, June 24.) Until Sunday July 3, I hadn’t realised there had been a market in Newberries car park. I normally walk to the shops, but I happened to need to park there on Sunday and saw a very small notice about the market.

I write in response to some of the issues and concerns raised following the council’s proposals to refurbish Threeways Community Centre. (‘Save our bar’, Borehamwood & Elstree Times, July 1.) I am disappointed that some centre users feel the overhaul is a negative thing and felt it might be helpful to clarify the following: The community centre hasn’t been refurbished for ten years. There are a number of repairs which need to be carried out on the building and so it is a better use of council tax payers’ money to make other improvements at the same time. This refurbishment will take approximately ten to 12 weeks.

It is unfortunate to know that Morpeth Avenue and nearby roads are not the only ones subject to anti-social behaviour of vehicle drivers by parking on the pavement, often with all four wheels, when they are only licensed to be on the road.

On Tuesday, May 24, I was waiting at the bus stop going into Borehamwood in Elstree Way near the junction with Manor Way. I had waited for more than half an hour before I saw the bus come round the corner. I put out my hand in the approved fashion, the bus driver saw me, slowed down and then deliberately drove past — the problem was he had seen my dog.

Polling by YouGov for the League Against Cruel Sports to coincide with National Shooting Week (May 28 to June 5) has shown 61 per cent of the public think it’s unacceptable to shoot live animals for “sport”.

The difficulties experienced by motorists and pedestrians at Stirling Corner and the decision to trial switching off the part-time traffic lights at the junction has generated a great deal of concern.

I agree with Councillors Bright and Cohen in regretting the “democratic deficit” created by the absence of Liberal Democrat candidates from most local wards in the recent Hertsmere elections (‘Two party is normal state’, Your Views, May 27).

I am happy to respond to Fran Metcalfe and explain the stance of the Elstree and Borehamwood Green Belt Society over the new unit for disabled children being built in Aldenham Country Park (‘Puzzled by new development’, Your Views, May 20.) We support it. I was at the meeting in Allum Hall, and heard the Herts County Council representative express the council’s wish to avoid the expense of running the park.

We write with reference to a letter in last week’s paper ‘We have lost an important voice’, Your Views, May 20, in which a resident expressed disappointment that there were no Liberal Democrats left on Hertsmere Borough Council.
