I am writing concerning the publicity over RWE nPower’s decision to blow up the Didcot Power Station cooling towers in the dark, thus depriving the community at large an opportunity to view this long-awaited spectacle.
I have a suggestion which I hope RWE nPower gives serious consideration to before they blow up the main chimney.
That a draw/raffle is held, say £1 a ticket. The winning ticket holders push the detonator button and all proceeds go to local charities.
This practice was widely used in the days of the old central electricity generating board, at the end of a power station’s life and not only created valuable community involvement but also raised valued donations for local charities.
How about it RWE nPower?

At long last after far too many excuses, Horspath Parish Council has now sent out a questionnaire asking, among other things, does the village support the proposal to erect a stone war memorial on the village green?

I don't know Liberty Baker or Robert Blackwell, but I do know that the implications of their tragic loss will reverberate across many lives for a very long time.

I just had to say how disgusted I am, as well as hundreds of other people I expect, on the short and unjust sentence of four years for Robert Blackwell after admitting causing Liberty Baker’s death by dangerous driving (April 17).

Why does the BBC lag so far behind what is actually happening?
