Sir, – A big thank you and well done to David Beadle from Shildon who completed the Great North Run in one hour 44 mins and so far has raised over £600 for The Friends of Darlington Memorial Hospital Volunteer Car Service. David’s father John Beadle is one of the 15 volunteer drivers based at DMH who provide transport to needy patients in and out of hospital giving both their time and use of their own cars receiving a small payment to cover fuel and running costs. These volunteers do an exceptional job for patients living in Darlington and the wider rural areas who do not need an ambulance but otherwise have travel to hospital difficulties Last year they looked after over 7,000 patients and travelled 284,000 miles. David’s efforts and very valuable contribution to help offset the costs of the service is greatly appreciated.

Sir, – The letter from the chair of Skeeby Parish Council (D&S Times, August 29), which purports to give the full facts, requires some corrections and additions. Firstly, the reference to a very serious accident soon after the fatal one on July 13, 1999 is incorrect. The county council's accredited accident statistics show that the first serious accident after this date was November 12, 2002, which was after the installation of the speed humps.

Sir, – Good to see that Mr Parsons is a true politician and only mentions the point that does not affect him which is the Richmond shops. I, among a lot of others, used to buy all my Christmas presents from these shops a long time ago – but no longer.

Sir, - I refer to the letter from Cllr Stuart Parsons (D&S Timnes, September 5) in response to a letter from Mrs Kemp the week earlier - where upon Cllr Parsons calls upon us all to celebrate our wonderful town. We could not agree more, and have in fact organised an event to do just that. Shop Local Charity Fashion Show is happening in Richmond on October 25 in the Town Hall and is a celebration and coming together of the many wonderful local independent businesses we have in Richmond and the surrounding area.

"THE war on drugs has failed. The criminalisation of people addicted to drugs has been a destructive force in every conceivable arena; from ethics to politics, health to policing, social work to economics.

KEN and Deirdre’s Welsh caravanning holiday is my new highlight of 2014. First Deirdre had a staring competition with a sheep and lost, then Ken and Deirdre went for a walk and were chased by a bull, except they didn’t get chased and it was actually a cow.
