I AM writing to say how much I look forward to and enjoy Chris Lloyd's Memories section in The Northern Echo on a Saturday. The pictures are fascinating and his vast knowledge and expert journalism perfectly complements them.

My thoughts must echo the thoughts of so many other readers as on a Saturday I have to get my local petrol station to keep me a copy of The Northern Echo in order to guarantee getting one – well done, Chris, keep up the good work!
