In the debate over dogs, there is one issue that can often be forgotten. This is the fact that dog excrement can, through the Toxocara parasite, pose an extremely serious health risk, especially to children.

ABOUT a year ago I sent a photograph showing the superb docking facilities for cruise ships bringing prosperity to the once very deprived Caribbean and asked how much longer Falmouth had to wait for dredging to allow larger cruise ships to enter our harbour.

I am the chair of a sub committee set up by the Falmouth Bay Beaches Management Group which is preparing a bid from the bay area to reapply for Gyllyngvase Beach to regain its Blue Flag status for 2015.

WE are dog lovers and love walking our son's dog. But all of our lettings are full next week as it is school holidays and what we would like is for visitors to have at least one beach dog free all year.

WITH the closure of the front desk at Falmouth police station now confirmed by the Conservative Crime and Police Commissioner Tony Hogg, what better time to call for the scrapping or 'closure' of Police Commissioner himself - or at least his office.

I WAS taken to A&E at Treliske recently and had to wait many hours, as well as stroke victims and others, until a bed became vacant, which happens a lot these days I believe. It was quite distressing.

JUST for the record, the Falmouth Civic Society fully supported the development at St Michael's Hotel, objecting only to the design of the Liner Building, which we thought was not the best architecture.

TONY Leamon's letter (24/9/14) is difficult to follow. He seems to argue that a resounding rejection for breaking up the UK by nearly 2/3rds of the Scottish electorate (62 per cent No or DNV) in the recent referendum was somehow a success for the Yes campaign.

ONE of the many interesting and valid points made at the recent AGM of our Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust, was the need for more people of all ages, especially those aged 70 and over, to join our existing RCHT membership and our hospital board might bear in mind the fact that many older people who don't drive rely on public transport, which means that we depend on bus services to convey us to and from evening meetings, which may not finish until late.

AFTER all the richly deserved tributes paid to those who assisted in making the Tall Ships regatta such an outstanding success, I was very surprised an angry to read no mention of the lovely firework display on Saturday evening given by the Saga Sapphire cruise ship.

With the cuts in services Cornwall Council are proposing and the transferral of yet more services and 'assets' to town and parish councils, Cornwall Council will inevitably end up with far fewer responsibilities than currently.

I VISITED Budock Cemetery to put flowers on my family’s graves. I was greeted by two Labrador dogs running amok around the graves as the owners were walking on the path - there are at least two notices to keep dogs on leads.

I wish to comment on the great shipping stories that I find from time to time in the online edition of your paper and was very interested to see in a recent report about the River Fal lay up and the latest news.

I WOULD like to support Mr Ian McDonald's letter to the Packet last week in which he encourages everyone to contact the Planning Department at Cornwall Council by September 9 if they have any objections to the proposed development of the HX1 site on the outskirts of Helston.

AT last - a stadium for Cornwall we can all support. Indian Queens is an ideal site for transport links and accessible to all the county. It's in the right place, affordable and the right size, so instead of wasting more time on the wrong site at Threemilestone, get on with it as soon as possible.

Gulls are a protected species, however, in my local area they are breeding prolifically each year at a higher degree than their natural death rate, and they appear to have very few natural predators with which to keep the numbers down.

A rare, precious and important discovery of an Iron Age settlement, found on a development plot in Porthleven had an archaeologist declaring proudly that it’s the first ever to be found in Cornwall and that there’s only one other example of similar found in the south west, if not the country, in the last two centuries.

AS reported in the Falmouth/Penryn Packet a pedestrian way across the A39 between Mabe and Kernick Road is needed. However, is a flat, toucan crossing on a busy by-pass and adjacent to a bustling roundabout and appropriate response to the problem?

This coming Monday on August 4, Falmouth, and the rest of Britain, including Australia, Canada, and New Zealand will commemorate the 100th anniversary of their entry into “The Great War”, commonly known as World War One.
