towbar

Hi,

Does anyone have any local recommendations for towbar fitting? I've just been quoted £360 by GT Towing in Welham Green, which is more than I was expecting.

Thanks.

Proposed pedestrian crossing at the bottom of Port Hill

Received a letter yesterday concerning proposals for a new pedestrian crossing at the bottom of Port Hill. The letter invites feedback regarding the proposed crossing, which looks like it will be sited just below the vets. Seems a great idea to me - that road is treacherous to cross (especially with...

Makes sense to try and get it all done during half-term, though.

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

Sounds sensible... Still unsure of your linkage between an aborrence of subsidy and ownership of railways though! I'm not sure I ever said I abhor subsidy - I think that was someone else. I see public services on a scale, with essential services such as fire, police, health etc. at one end rightly ...

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

Same reason I don't support re-nationalising railways, as I don't think it's fair for non-train travellers to subsidise rail travel. What is your plan for running a service that can't have any effective competition? (and arguably, the real problem, can never be profitable but is considered a public...

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

Joby - would that include health services? Of course not, and I'm sure you'll agree that there is a world of difference between a car park and, say, the fire service or a GP. There are a group of essential services that all use, or all have potential to need to use, that are tax-payer funded - poli...

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

No. Services should be paid for by those that use them.
