I agree with Ted Kelly’s sentiments regarding Saracens’ plans to refurbish a dilapidated, old-fashioned stadium so that not only Saracens, but many other clubs, schools and members of the general public can use it all the year round, (‘An offer too good to miss, Your Views, October 6) The residents of Mill Hill should support this venture wholeheartedly.

Claims that house sales have been lost as a result of the proposed major new waste plant at Pinkham Way should send a chill down the spines of everyone who lives within a couple of miles of the site. A couple planning to move to Berkshire said they lost their buyer — even though this buyer had agreed the deal — because of the plans.

Do all the tens of thousands of residents, living within a five-mile radius of Pinkham Wood, realise the risk of pollution and smells carried to their doorsteps is mitigated only by the direction of the wind?

In supporting plans for the proposed waste plant in Pinkham Way, Friern Barnet, Barnet Council is showing the same blatant disregard for the wishes of a majority of residents in the area as it has done when introducing ‘pay by phone’ parking.

Thank you for featuring my story in your October 6 edition (‘Three wheels in the desert’, Times Series) about my 380-kilometre bike ride challenge as a disabled man trying to raise money for the charity Norwood.

Victoria Park in North Finchley is one of the treasures handed down to Barnet citizens. However, the No Cycling signs are out of date and the problem arises when people cycle fast on the same path as pedestrians, putting both young children and the elderly at risk.

With the UK facing further impending cuts, Contact the Elderly is calling on Times Series readers to spare some time helping lonely older people, whose level of social contact is being affected by the depletion of services and rising costs in the standard of living.

We are told thousands of children in England are being horrifically abused by gangs with current estimates saying up to 10,000 children could be affected by sexual abuse, although it is feared the true figure could be much higher.

Councillor Brian Gordon (‘Wide range of the discussion’, Your Views, October 13) must have been at a different Hendon Area Forum to the one I and others attended. At the meeting, he started by saying he wanted to let people have their say, but continually interrupted from the very first minute.

Regarding the Saracens plan to refurbish a dilapidated, old-fashioned stadium so not only Saracens Rugby Club, but many other clubs, schools and members of the public can use all the year round, is a venture the residents of Mill Hill should support wholeheartedly.

With the planned reduction in staff proposed by Barnet Council to save millions and the intended out-sourcing of planning, parking and other sevices, I ask why do we will still need so many councillors?

After the longstanding and depressing news-diet of inflation, unemployment, hate crimes and death, my spirits soared on reading of the charity day in which members of Hindu, Jewish and Christian faiths combined to work together for charity (“Faiths united for charity day”, Times Series, September 29).

With regard to your coverage of the Schools Young Gardeners Competition, (“Pupils harvest a victory", Times Series, September 29) When “Easy Barnet” Council decided not to fund Barnet in Bloom this year, Hendon Horticultural Society, which donated the original Schools Cup, decided to go ahead and run this section itself with support from Finchley Nurseries.

I recently wrote to you regarding the new parking controls at The Broadwalk shopping centre in Edgware and how my elderly neighbours had been threatened with bailiffs for not paying parking fines for stopping (not parking) in the approach roads to the centre (“Have others suffered this?” Your Views, September 15.) Following the publication of my letter, I was contacted by the centre management, the result being that all fines and threatened action has now been cancelled. It has also been explained to me why the new parking controls have been set up. Unfortunately, on this occasion there was an error with the issue of the fines and I am delighted to say the outcome has been very satisfactory.

Your report of the death and serious injury of three youths who pelted a bystander with eggs from their car and were then chased by the enraged victim in his own vehicle, failed to explain precisely what these blameless young men were doing driving around the streets late at night hurling eggs, and perhaps abuse, at passers-by (“Twelve-year sentence for killing teenager”, Times Series, September 29).

For the second time in a few weeks, I’ve noticed paint in the brook that runs along the bottom of Friary Park and it seems someone is tipping their waste painting materials into the drain at the end of the day.

I was quite saddened to see how many pro-cannabis comments there were following the recent article regarding the police closure of a drugs factory, “Police uncover colossal cannabis crop in Hendon”, www.times-series.co.uk.

Any of us at any time in our lives might need social care, and the recent Dilnot report on the funding for adult social care brought home an uncomfortable truth: chronic under-funding has left us with a system too broken to support people properly.

Residents’ forums should be exactly that — a place for residents to challenge councillors and officers and where our views are listened to and complaints answered. However, now planning and licensing issues cannot be discussed and items having to be submitted before the meeting, the whole point of the forum is null and void.

This afternoon I went outside to get something from my car when I noticed a leaflet under the windscreen wiper. The leaflet had obviously been put on the screen while it was wet and, having since dried out, was stuck fast.
