‘Do you ever see a councillor apart from elections?’

ceundergndump SIR – When I thought that our councillors could not get any worse, along came county councillor Mike Hawkins, who reckons that the Rector of Whitehaven, the Rev John Bannister, has a good job (letters, The Whitehaven News, October 25).

‘Botching and fumbling? You’re wrong Jamie Reed’ - by county council leader Eddie Martin

ceedmart9in0111 IT HAS been my experience that the more cautious of our MPs do try to find out the facts before bursting into print. It is unfortunate that Copeland MP Jamie Reed did not follow that convention.

Cuts are a rude awakening – but let’s not make them a death knell

SIR – In the wake of all the furore expressed in your paper and media sites in relation to the enormous decisions Copeland Council are being forced to make as a result of Government policies, we have to accept that the buck has now landed in our constituency.

‘There is no cavalry coming over the hill – our future is largely in our own hands’

FOR anyone who wondered what the government means by ‘austerity’, last week’s announcement of cuts to services in Copeland can surely no longer leave them in any doubt.

Anger as the extent of Copeland Council’s proposed cuts sinks in

SIR – Some years back, the then Whitehaven town council borrowed money to build the multi-storey car park in Whitehaven – and found itself, fairly quickly, with an unwanted burden of interest payments that stifled services.

Time to make a stand in the battle of the wind turbines

SIR – At least the councillors had the correct idea to listen to the people they represent by refusing the wind farm at Whitehaven. I fail to see why it needs a second hearing though. Sir, – Readers will be aware that since 1995 GP services in the out of hours period have been provided by a local GP managed service formally known as CueDoc and now known as CHOC ( Cumbria Health on Call).
