In regards to Richard Bacon’s column (The answer to issues lies in plans, Diss Express, August 25), in my view, what Long Stratton needs is a structure of co-operation, with South Norfolk Council, the parish council and the local community involved in positive engagement, all tied in with a neighbourhood plan.

Harleston has a renowned community spirit with numerous clubs, voluntary organisations and an array of independent speciality shops. The provision of free car parking enables everyone to take their time and make full use of the cafes and restaurants as well as exploring the shops and meeting friends. There is an ambience, captured by the town’s logo “Time for Everyone”.

READER LETTER: I’m an accountant - and I believe the Harleston car park lease fee is misleading

A leaflet to Harleston residents states that if the town council takes a ten year lease on the car park and keeps free parking, this would create a budgetary increase of £67,523 per year (£27.66 per household).

VILLAGE SIGN - BRESSINGHAM

READER LETTER: An evening of sheer fun

I would like to congratulate the ‘Kestrels’ group of children at Bressingham Primary School and director teacher Mrs Gilbert on their presentation of Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies at the school on the evening of July 13. We were entertained for just over one and a half hours – which included a short interval and free ice cream– to an evening of sheer fun and laughter with no hesitation or fluffing of any lines which several of the children had to learn. We even had a visit from a ‘real’ king towards the end of the show. Well done children and Mrs Gilbert, you certainly deserved the standing ovation you received at the end of the show. Best wishes to you all.
