6 Tips to Successfully Participating in an Online Charity Lotto

(These views are the view of the Author and not necessarily the view of Valley News)  Most people want to participate in a charitable cause but lack the means and motivation. A charity lottery aims at reaching this group of people by offering a juicy incentive. What...

(These views are the view of the Author and not necessarily the view of Valley News)  Though you can learn how to play blackjack in just a couple of minutes, you shouldn’t really sit down and play for money until you’ve mastered basic strategy. But what exactly is...
Brexit: have you say

Brexit: have you say

Valley News readers have responded rapidly to the historic vote in the House of Commons last night, Tuesday, September 3. Jeremy Wraith is the most expressive so far. He wrote: “The vast majority complaining about Johnson proroguing parliament and losing 3/4 days of...
Coppicing is well and thriving in Dorset

Coppicing is well and thriving in Dorset

The report of our talk to Durrington WI was good to see but a couple of errors seem to have crept in and the headline was rather misleading. We would not want the public to get the wrong end of the stick (so to speak!). Coppicing is well and thriving in Dorset (and...
PCC candidate: Clear duty to protect young

PCC candidate: Clear duty to protect young

A major news story was the report of the Home Affairs Committee on the violence strategy. The headline calls for dedicated police for violent schools. In my view, this is misleading and portrays schools and the solution in a simplistic way. Let’s be clear – schools...
Politically-biased?

Politically-biased?

Is the Valley News changing its name to the Brexit Party News after you wrote the article on the front page with the bold print title: ‘EU gravy train exposed’? The person who has become an MEP talks about us ‘giving up independence’, this is...

Harnham and Netherhampton Parish Council put up a credible defence for not building 700 houses on the linking road. To all our amazement someone noticed an article in the Independent (August 3) from the South West planning inspectors. They are asking how building...

Maltings still in the melting pot

Maltings still in the melting pot

City Talk …City desk diary by Insider Planning, August 12, Guildhall We’re in the banqueting hall and it’s crowded. It’s not just the usual planning committee here, either. Several other councillors, as well as residents, have turned up to have their say. What’s...
Not ghettos

Not ghettos

Ray Hand highlights the lack of a police station but I fear the college will not revert to its former use. I am incensed by the reference to elderly accommodation being generalised as ghettos. This smacks of lack of knowledge or basic illiteracy. These comfortable and...

Opinion: biased coverage?

I take great exception to the article entirely biased in favour of the views of one party (the Brexit Party), and one particular MEP on whom the article is based. If it was a one-off, you might have a defence, but I can see from previous platforms you have given to...
John Glen MP: Planning – the great divider

John Glen MP: Planning – the great divider

Planning is a hugely contentious issue and one on which my input is frequently sought. Of course, MPs are deliberately excluded from arbitrating on individual planning applications. The process is fully devolved to local government and we possess neither the right to...
