Dear Editor, DO the Conservatives really mean we will get a live music venue? I saw the recent Conservative promo video on here and I was quite impressed, but do they really mean everything they say in that video? It’s all well and good making…

Dear Editor Re: The recent discussion in Your Harlow concerning the state of the Town Centre. Some of what has been said I agree with. The northern half of the Town Centre is in a very poor state indeed, shops empty, Market gone, buildings neglected…

Dear Editor, IT has recently come to my attention that Burnt Mill School is offering weapons training to school children. It is absolutely shocking that the school I used to attend is now grooming children for the military. It is utterly obscene to train young…

Sir, WHY didn’t successive administrations in Harlow think about transport, (perhaps because it’s controlled by Tory Essex CC) and why have Conservatives Essex wasted nearly a billion pounds on successive developments to the A414 that have failed?

Dear Editor, I AM deeply concerned for the local small businesses of Harlow recovering from this pandemic. The Labour-run Harlow Council has mindfully neglected businesses when it comes to distributing the grants. Central government gave them the allocation based on data of local businesses. They…

Dear Sir, IT is astounding how constant criticism of Harlow Town Centre has gone unheeded for years. In fact, it has deteriorated consistently leading shoppers living on the fringes of the town to switch their custom to nearby towns such as Epping, Hoddesdon and Bishop’s…

Sir, Re the recent planning meeting and the decision regarding Netteswell Hall Cllr Danvers, I think that hit the nail on the head with his comment. It is indeed development by stealth, neglect and decay. Profit before people and the environment. Whilst new homes are needed, here is…

Sir, IT has been heartening to see the town wide efforts of Harlow’s wonderful “Womble” groups. The daily posts on social media showing the sacks of rubbish collected by groups of volunteers suggest that the community spirit fostered during the pandemic may become a welcome legacy…

Dear Editor, FIRST of all, I’d like to go on the record and say how good it is to have a locally based, fellow Harlow resident putting a spotlight on all the excellent things that happen in our town. Be it a charity event, new…

Dear Editor, I received a letter yesterday from the Tory party, taking the praise for the new crossing at Bush Fair. I am sorry to burst their balloon,but would like to say that this is a lie. I was one of a group of senior…
