This is not time for cheap political points

5:23pm Wednesday 23rd April 2014

It is right to be concerned when a major employer announces job losses, but for Cllr Hadley and others to use this as an opportunity to make inaccurate, cheap political points is unhelpful and ultimately destructive.

Have we lost our national pride?

Some asylum seekers do make false claims

1:22pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014

Under the headline 'Asylum seekers', Veronica Edwards (Letters, April 18) does what every well-meaning liberal does, which is to provide a generic description of asylum seekers as "some of the most vulnerable people in this world."

This inequality must end

12:58pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014

YOUR shocking food bank story (April 17) raises two important questions?

I'm sorry, I made a mistake

I would love to see stairs in the Market House

6:16pm Thursday 17th April 2014

Wild accusations will achieve nothing

6:13pm Thursday 17th April 2014

I am concerned for job losses in Ledbury, but these wild accusations in last week's paper will achieve nothing.

Let's talk Ledbury up, not down

6:08pm Thursday 17th April 2014

Is Ledbury resilient?

Building cable car on hills would open a Pandora's box

4:13pm Thursday 17th April 2014

THE Malvern Hills Act of 1884 was passed to prevent further encroachment of the Malvern Hills and commons (building on it) or surreptitiously taking a few square metres from the edges and adding them to gardens.

What on earth are Chester Draws?

4:09pm Thursday 17th April 2014

I'm more worried than ever about housing plan now

4:03pm Thursday 17th April 2014

AFTER the article on the new housing figures (March 21) I am more concerned than ever about the South Worcestershire Development Plan.

Let's fill empty homes before building new ones

3:58pm Thursday 17th April 2014

WITH the recent announcement that south Worcestershire will have to find space for 28,370 new homes by 2030, there are very real concerns about how this will negatively impact upon the quality of living in our town.


1:49pm Thursday 17th April 2014

I read with interest the Malvern Town Council newletter issue 28 Spring 2014:

Cycling from one building site to the next

1:03pm Thursday 17th April 2014

HOW nice it is to read in this week's Malvern Gazette that the Tour of Britain cycle race will be coming to Malvern next year because of how "picturesque the towns are" .

My broadband is still too slow

12:59pm Thursday 17th April 2014

We drive to Tewkesbury to shop now

12:25pm Thursday 17th April 2014

Tiresome questions at meeting

12:19pm Thursday 17th April 2014

I ATTENDED the Malvern Town Council annual meeting on March 16.

Ploy to make us use costly car parks

3:39pm Saturday 12th April 2014

REGARDING Ledbury's proposed new parking rules (Reporter, March 28), this is another cynical attempt by the Herefordshire and Ledbury councils to force people to use the town's very overpriced car parks.

4:36pm Saturday 5th April 2014

Concern over council spending

4:31pm Saturday 5th April 2014

TOWN councillors are 10 a penny, Malvern Hills district councillors on the other hand cost up to £350 an hour for one, plus expenses. Oh, and those allowances they just voted themselves (hefty size pocket-money) as icing on the cake.

Support the Elgar Pound

4:26pm Friday 4th April 2014

An opportunity exists for Malvern to have a local currency, the Elgar Pound.

Don't compare us with Derbyshire cable car

4:21pm Friday 4th April 2014

COUNCILLOR Mike Charles is very mistaken in comparing the cable car at the Heights of Abraham in Derbyshire with the proposal for installing one on the Malvern Hills.

Flippant suggestions?

12:45pm Friday 4th April 2014

Is Peter Atkins' suggestion (Letters, March 21) that fewer rescue centres would solve the pet overpopulation problem rather flippant?

Let's disband Ledbury Town Council

11:40am Friday 4th April 2014

As usual in such situations the town councillors who have suggested, and indeed those who have backed, ideas for silly parking demonstrations and illegal vandalism over car-parking issues in Ledbury reveal far more than the paucity of their ideas alone.

Anger spoiled a good meeting

11:22am Friday 4th April 2014

11:26am Thursday 3rd April 2014

Peace tranquillity and friendship are predominantly at the very heart of our Malvern community; however, it takes a lot of effort and mutuality to keep it that way.

Our carnival committee needs new blood

12:27pm Monday 31st March 2014

AS a founder member of the committee that reformed the carnival in 1975, I was disappointed to note the recent news in the Ledbury Reporter.

Leader must listen to what people say

12:22pm Monday 31st March 2014

Bus stop contribution

12:18pm Monday 31st March 2014

HAVING reflected upon the recent newspaper coverage of the successful installation of Pound Bank Road bus stop, I notice that support from two individuals at Malvern Town Council was not mentioned. I ask that we now recognise that contribution.

I don't advocate vandalism!

12:11pm Monday 31st March 2014

A triumph of good sense and humour

Station is so much smarter now

11:54am Sunday 30th March 2014
