Readers’ Letters: First aid skills compulsory in state schools

Dear editor
You never know how you would act in an emergency, yet our actions could save a life.

Dear Editor
I am writing to you to in a bid to encourage your readers to talk about death.

National healthcare charity Sue Ryder has found that when the people of Cheshire were asked about the more light-hearted aspects of how they would like to spend their last days on earth, they had very clear ideas.

Readers’ Letters: Barony Park injunction not “silver bullet” to stop travellers

Readers’ Letters: Barony Park injunction not “silver bullet” to stop travellers

Readers’ Letters: Close busy roads during Jazz Festival, urges mum
