Well done to Scouts for over­seas work


Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - READERS' LETTERS -

AS A for­mer Scout I couldn’t help but smile when I read about the var­i­ous over­seas trips that young North-east Scouts have been mak­ing (EE, July 28). To travel to Malawi is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity, one that I wish I’d had a younger age. It must have been re­ally eye­open­ing, but I am proud to see they worked hard too to cre­ate a new toi­let block and wa­ter tank. Well done to them.

– A Pol­lock I RE­ALLY hope the third Don cross­ing isn’t de­layed for too long. I un­der­stand res­i­dents have con­cerns and that the route might have to change, but this city re­ally needs all the help it can get to keep traf­fic mov­ing. It seems the AWPR could still be some time away, IT’S FAN­TAS­TIC that a film might be made about Wattie McDon­ald and his pas­sion – husky rac­ing. The story of the gru­elling chal­lenges he and his dogs have un­der­taken, in freez­ing tem­per­a­tures and across bar­ren ter­rain, would make for fas­ci­nat­ing view­ing.

de­pend­ing on the rul­ing of the ap­peal from Road Sense, so a new Don cross­ing would be a step in the right direc­tion.
