Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

WHAT you’ve been say­ing on our Face­book page:

Look­ing back: Do you re­mem­ber when ra­tioning was not so sweet for shop­pers (July 24 and web­site) Chris Hall: Au­gust and ev­ery­one’s wear­ing an over­coat! Ian Ormerod: I re­mem­ber when vir­tu­ally ev­ery­thing was ra­tioned and it didn’t end un­til the Coro­na­tion. They couldn’t have all that op­u­lence on show and the sub­jects still en­dur- ing ra­tioning. Ca­role Blood: Looks like the old Co-op or Red­lams in Union Street. An­nie Car­lin: Asda in Black­burn Road. Mary O’Kane: Yes, I do – peo­ple think I’m mak­ing it up when I tell them.

Multi-mil­lion White­birk busi­ness park plans get go ahead (July 24) Chris Dean: Bril­liant idea, just what we need, more empty shop­ping ar­eas, prob­a­bly fit a few more fast food shops in there though, be­cause in this age of the obese child we need those. Who needs trees and grass? Just get in the way of progress – give me con­crete any day, doesn’t need mow­ing ei­ther. Josh Blayne Allen: I will ad­mit, af­ter see­ing more plans and how it will con­nect via Black­burn Road in Knuz­den, that I am com­ing around to the idea. Although I don’t have to live next to it and can see it be­ing hor­ri­ble to look at. Christo­pher Brindle: Won­der­ful news, here’s to 2,000 jobs from a field that would oth­er­wise be sat com­pletely empty and use­less. Much needed eco­nomic stim­u­lus for Hyn­d­burn.

Hyn­d­burn res­i­dents owe £5.5m in un­paid coun­cil tax (page 2 and web­site) Ken Moss: Un­paid, not un­chased. There are nine coun­cil letters sent out be­fore it gets any­where near the bailiffs, if peo­ple have trou­ble pay­ing then get in touch. The coun­cil isn’t a mon­ster, it’s there to help.
