People before rubbish plea
I can t help but feel annoyed that last week s front page news was about rubbish collection! Yes, it is a problem that needs to be resolved quickly, because, no, we don t want the streets infested with rats (again!).

Yes, it is a problem that needs to be resolved quickly, because, no, we don't want the streets infested with rats (again!). Nobody would argue against that.
However, I feel it is somewhat insensitive to those who are about to lose their jobs, some of whom have families, three weeks before Christmas!
Unfortunately, the recession has seen many businesses disappear from our High Street, and I realise that it is nobody's fault, but I do think this could have been approached slightly differently, and the issue resolved without the involvement of your paper. I think a little more support for those who are being made redundant, like that shown to the staff of Woolworth and M & S last Christmas would've been appreciated.
You may also want to watch:
The staff at Threshers have already had customers who have come into the shop to make their feelings known about the closure (not always politely, I believe) and yet they still manage to serve with a smile.
I would like to say thank you to the men and women who work there, and I hope they all find new employment quickly.
