Wonderful medical care received
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
