Call for cameras on busy Arnold road

Will we ever get speed cameras placed on Rolleston Drive in Arnold?

It seems to be a prime road for speeding vehicles, especially in the hours between 8 am and 9.30am.

I’ve actually been threatened by a driver who thought I was filming his motor driving at approximately 50 mph; he went past me and had obviously done a U-turn. He then pulled up at the side of me on the pavement and verbally threatened me with violence.

It’s about time we had some speed cameras put up

Ticket offices at stations are essential

I’m furious that the government and rail bosses have announced plans to close almost 1,000 ticket offices at stations across the country.

Ticket offices are essential. If they are closed, it will be devastating for disabled people, the elderly, people with learning difficulties and many more people who rely on being able to speak to someone at a station in order to be able to get around.

Staff at stations are crucial for access to information, to waiting rooms, to facilities – and losing them will have a big impact on safety.

Despite the massive implications for passengers, the rail companies and the government are ploughing ahead.

I support the rail strikes, and I believe that ticket offices and station staffing need to be protected. I encourage everyone to respond to the consultations and hope that the government will see sense.

Netherfield on the rise

I think it’s great that all these new shops are opening on Netherfield high street.

For years the town had been becoming a ghost town with all the council’s focus being on Arnold, but now a selection of great independent shops, a gym and takeaways have opened and it is thriving.

Heron Foods opening a store has also helped.

Not a penny has been spent here so I am proud that without the millions spent on Arnold we have turned the town around ourselves.
