This week has been dominated by the sad news of Margaret Thatcher’s death. Although it is 23 years since she left office her influence is felt still. Margaret Thatcher’s achievements went well beyond the shores of Britain.

IN reply to David Ingram’s letter in the issue dated 28th February 2013 regarding the "Well-to-do" Residents of Cranbourne Road: I generally agree with his basic comments about the double parking in Cranbourne Road but would like to state that it was only two residents who parked in the road and both my wife and myself felt that this move was quite unnecessary and could have been handled in a more mature way.
