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.

Well, well. It seems as if I've ruffled the feathers of Councillor Ross. I must apologise for the slightly abusive nature of my comments. I do object though to my views as an electoral voter being treated with disdain. It seems the only way to attract attention except when an election is looming.

What a superb job just completed by Collingtons fitting our windows and doors throughout the house in under two weeks. Sarah and I are so impressed we thought we would share it with you and your readers.

I RECEIVED a copy of the June 2014 Newsletter of the Carrick Over 50’s Forum, whose editor seems to think that jokes involving or referring to concentration camps are amusing. I think they are sick, wicked and outrageous.

THE ex Budock Hospital site is full of mature trees and wonderful shrubs which have taken 50 plus years to grow. No doubt the new developments by Falmouth School and CC will do a very good job of removing all these wonderful things and once again denuding the countryside, as the Camborne bypass last year.

I write in response to Terry Smith, of Bay Court, who wrote last week about 'scruffy' Falmouth. I agree with your comments wholeheartedly Terry, and yes, it is a shame that Cornwall Council seems to have abdicated their responsibility.

The publication of the inquest into the death of David Breacker on the front page prompted a big reaction from our readers as can be seen by the selection of letters and emails we received on the subject published below.

YES, I do stir myself at 6am and have the photos to prove it. All dated and time strapped. I also have the pictures from last year which show the bad state of affairs then, and the improvements to the streets of Smithick now.
