Won­der­ful med­i­cal care re­ceived

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

I just want to praise the team of paramedics, am­bu­lance and A & E team at the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal who came to my aid when my hus­band al­most lost con­scious­ness over a week ago.

I am so grate­ful to them all for their gen­tle­ness and un­der­stand­ing and great kind­ness when I needed it most, all of which re­sulted in a di­ag­no­sis which I am sure will pre­vent it ever hap­pen­ing again.

They work un­der such dif­fi­cult Yes, the cob­bles in the town cen­tre are in a shoddy state (Grow­ing Con­cern Over Shoddy State Of Cob­bles, KE, Fe­bru­ary 11) but it was also shoddy work that was done when they were re­laid a few years ago.

There’s noth­ing wrong with the ac­tual cob­bles, Ash­ford is an old town and cob­bles go with it.

What is not right is the ma­te­rial in the gaps. If they had filled it up to the edge of the cob­ble­stones with proper ma­te­rial in first place, we wouldn’t trip over, not only old peo­ple, but also young­sters on stilet­toes.

I my­self avoid that area as much as pos­si­ble.

And, I don’t think the stone slabs are any bet­ter, nowa­days they are made like papier-mache and un­der the weight of lor­ries will crack in no time.

Not long ago in front of Boots the chemist was a very large lorry. The driver got out and asked me where Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional was.

I told him you are in the wrong place, you shouldn’t be here. Then he asked one of the traders in mar­ket. In the end the driver had to re­verse, I didn’t wait to see how. Del­fina T Brooks, Ken­ning­ton
