I thought your story about Kelly Nash and family was heartwarming, (“Lasting memories for such a deserving family”, Borehamwood Times, October 9) but it does make me question giving to charity if that’s where my money is going and I won’t be donating to that particular charity in the future.

I am still collating memories or information on Jean Simmons, particularly from her time living at 120 Cheviot Gardens, NW2 and surrounding areas, plus her time at the Aida Foster Dance & Drama School in Golders Green.

I refer to a letter from Mr Stephen Oakes-Monger in the Borehamwood & Elstree Times about painting road markings outside the closed fire station in Radlett (‘Paint cannot gloss over stupidity’, Your Views, September 12).

As we approach Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, I want to send my good wishes to members of the Jewish community throughout Hertsmere. Over the past year, I have been privileged to engage with the Jewish community by visiting synagogues, charities and speaking to younger members of the community. I have been deeply impressed by the sense of community and warmth, anchored by values of mutual responsibility, charity and education.

To the driver of the silver BMW who pulled out without looking or indicating at the Bec roundabout in Furzehill Road, I am still shaken up by the fact you didn’t appear to be too bothered that you almost smashed into me on my bike and shocked by the way that you drove considering you had a small child asleep in the back.

I am sorry to learn people are so outraged by Network Rail’s work to so effectively clear their railway lines around Elstree and Borehamwood station. When thousands of commuters and businesses rely on a railway service that needs to be efficient and above all reliable, is it wrong that railways should take firm action to prevent delays and costly clean-ups?

Paul Welsh in his film nostalgia column (“What happened to innocent until proven guilty?, Borehamwood Times, August 22) succinctly covered a pivotal issue that has recently come to light with our legal system and I feel strongly about.

Hedgehogs, like many wildlife species, are declining in numbers due to environmental changes in both rural and urban areas, mostly caused by humans. But you can help the urban scene by doing some simple things around your garden. Hedgehogs are good for the garden because they eat a lot of the creepy crawlies that most of us don’t like ie slugs, beetles, earwigs, worms and millipedes – to name but a few. But the hogs can’t get at them if your garden is too tidy, or they can’t move freely from one garden to the next.

Late afternoon on Sunday, August 17, we were caught in a horrendous traffic jam on the M1 (northbound) on our way home from a long day out. We have since learned that the cause of this problem was a festival at the Hare Krishna Centre in Aldenham.

Were your late father to be alive today Mr McEnhill, I would be happy to thank him for guarding, on our behalf, General Von Rundstedt until he went to trial at Nuremberg (‘Answer for your heinous war crimes’, Your Views, August 8).

I am appalled at your decision to print the letter from Michael McEnhill proposing that Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel should be tried for ‘heinous war crimes’, and drawing a parallel between him and a Nazi general tried at Nuremberg (‘Answer for your heinous war crimes’, Your Views, August 8).

During the last war my father kept General Gerd Von Rundstedt under lock and key in Shenley Hospital, a few miles from Borehamwood, which housed both mental and military men and women, before packing him off to Nuremberg to answer for war crimes.

On Friday, August 1, my husband who is in a wheelchair and I were trying to get on a bus at the stop opposite Morrisons. There was a woman with a buggy who would not make way for us, so I had no alternative than to take the chair down the ramp backwards, the chair gathered speed and we both finished up in the ditch, which usually has water in it.

Having read Councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst’s (Lib Dem) utterances last week (‘Help us to save your under-threat services’, Your Views, July 25), you might be forgiven for thinking that he and his group were the only opposition on the county council.
3:50pm Thursday 31st July 2014
Further to Councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst’s somewhat muddled letter last week (‘Help us to save your under-threat services’, Your Views, July 25), and whilst I cannot confirm his figures, it is clear that bus services that run during the evening and on Sundays are grossly under-used and therefore represent a conundrum for the county council.

Upon reading articles and letters in recent weeks about the proposed changes to the Elstree recycling centre, I am clear as to what is a ‘done deal’. Saving money and improving efficiency (usually two different terms for the same thing) will override any considerations of the adverse impact upon any changes to residents.

The almost childish response by former Labour councillor Joe Goldberg (‘Something out of Cloud Cuckoo Land’, Your Views, May 23) to my letter published in the previous edition (‘Labour party has gone off ‘half-cocked’, Your Views, May16) exposing the confession by former Grand Vizier of the Labour party Peter Mandelson is no substitute for intelligent examination of the facts.
