Sir, – In this week’s Talking Football (“McCann staring at the exit?”, Courier, September 19) your writer Ian Roache comments that “it is regrettable that at such a positive time for the city, thanks to the opening of the V&A, the two Dundee football clubs are performing so poorly”.
Sir, – I seem to recall that the plan to reuse Perth City Hall as a food market with ancillary social and community activities and benefits was brushed aside by Perth and Kinross Council as they intended to reopen the City Hall as a world-class arts venue.
Sir, – This week we learnt that Muriel Gray wants to rebuild the ruined School of Art in Glasgow.
Sir, – Among all the praise for the new V&A there has, locally at least, been a lot of “yes but...”.
Sir, – The story on Fife Council scrapping the Adopt A Street plan is a terribly sad reflection on the local authority and its workforce.
Sir, – Amidst the euphoria surrounding the opening of Dundee’s V&A, it is a pity that other aspects of the 30-year redevelopment of the city centre have been overlooked or ignored.
Sir, – I am really cross that Perth and Kinross Council has failed to tidy up the Meikleour Beech Hedge, as reported in The Courier.
Sir, – Your report on cycling provision in Perth and Kinross on September 11 quotes Liberal Democrat councillor Lewis Simpson saying that, “Perth has some wonderful cycle paths.”
Sir, – It was Winston Churchill who said he would rather argue against a hundred idiots than have one agree with him.
Sir, – Craig Millar’s article on the V&A (“Museum truly open to all”, Courier, September 8) makes the valid point that there remains financial hardship in Dundee despite the redevelopment of the waterfront.
