Revisit legacy of Herbert Read

This year is the 50th anniversary of Herbert Read. His work in art education - for children and teachers - is legendary. Books on all his topics are held at Malton Library.

Recalling a once vibrant town centre.

Letter: Our town has lost services, shops and social venues

Looking back to the ‘good old days’ I remember when Pocklington had: a train station, gas works, a coal depot, Beals Nurseries, a scrap yard, a foundry, a council yard, a Jobcentre, a National School, a printers, six garages, a dance hall (Zillertal), a drill hall, a police station manned 24/7, four fish shops (open to midnight), cobblers, electric shop (YEB) to pay bills and buy goods, a wood yard, men’s outfitters, English’s Grain Store and Mill, launderette, Egg Packers, Rowleys Factory, Relay Shop, Rowleys (for school uniforms), Millers Wet Fish, Ainsty’s, a car showroom, Sundora Factory plus numerous small shops for groceries, shoes, dresses, etc.

Saddened at closure.

Letter: Sad at Sue Ryder Holme closure

It is so sad that the care home is closing. Holme Hall is set in beautiful grounds at the foot of Church Hill in Holme-upon-Spalding Moor. The woods are home to the famous statue of the Virgin Mary that is reported to weep. The hall was initially a convent and when vacated by the nuns much of the fabric and furnishing was retained by Sue Ryder.

If the motion was purely for council play areas I would have supported it.

Letter: Smoking plan a waste of money

I was saddened to read Conservative Cllr Jonathan Owen, ERYC deputy leader from Kilham regarding his motion to restrict smoking in children’s play areas (letters, Thursday, November 30).

Ypres has been restored exactly as it was before 1914.

Letter: Restored Ypres is a sight to behold

For me, on my first visit to the battlefield sites of the Ypres salient, it wasn’t the battleground with its labyrinth of trenches and the layer upon layer of memorial head stones to the fallen but the beautiful town of Ypres itself that drew my attention.

Disappointed council did not support motion.

Letter: I am hoping to restrict smoking at play areas

I write as Chairman of the East Riding Health and Wellbeing Board, and as Deputy Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council to thank fellow East Riding councillors for overwhelmingly supporting a motion I put to the Full Council this week.

Thanks for support

Letter: Thank you for your support at race night

We would like to thank everyone who came to the charity race night at Burnby Hall on Saturday 11 November to help raise funds for the Amyloidosis Foundation where we also paid respect to our late son, brother and dad Mike Murr who died from Amyloidosis.
