We are writing to you on this occasion to express our extreme disappointment in the decision that Sandy Balls has taken in cancelling forthwith the Rookies Lifesaving courses that used to take place on Saturday mornings at the swimming centre.

I READ the recent Forest Journal cover article about the effects in Ringwood of changes to health and safety legislation regarding street closures with dismay, particularly as I have participated in the town's carnival and am on the festival committee which organises a number of charitable activities within the town.

AS an independent and professional arboriculturalist living in the New Forest and working in Dorset, I wonder how many readers are concerned about the number of trees being felled locally (particularly in the Forest).

I SINCERELY hope that many Journal readers were able to visit Ringwood last Saturday and see the Carnival procession and all the other events in town during the afternoon and evening of Saturday, September 16.

IN his letter on Liberal Democrat plans to abolish council tax in favour of a local income tax (Forest Postbag, September 7) Chris Treleaven, the Conservative New Forest district councillor for Ringwood East and Sopley, got it all wrong.

I WOULD like to reply to and expand on some of the points raised in your article on the future of community tennis on Carvers recreation ground in Ringwood (Tennis club launches SOS to community', Forest Journal, June 29).

SALLY ANDREW should really get her facts right before writing an accusatory letter to Forest Journal (Postbag, May 18) regarding Fordingbridge councillors' pursuing self-interest. The town council is not responsible for business rents and rates, nor does it impose parking charges.

IT seems to me a wasted opportunity when MG/Rover went bust that perhaps a government-backed company was not formed to create a car company to mass-produce clean cars that is, cars powered by solar power, backed up with dynamos behind each wheel and, if need be, air sucked in from the front of the vehicle through a small fan/turbine and out the back while driven.

I ASSUME most people realise why so many mobile phone masts are on council land, in school grounds etc bcause the mobile phone operator not only had to pay a massive fee to central government for a licence to operate their business but rent is also collected from masts.

I READ with interest all the hoohah about the plans for the future closure of some Verwood roads but I am still trying to find out who was responsible for Dewlands Way not joining up with the Manor road roundabout, but making it a left turn only, less than 10 metres away.

AS I read your Running on empty' front-page story last week, I wondered if the acres of water in the dozens of gravel pits lining the Fordingbridge-Ringwood road are used to feed the areas water supplies?

IN response to previous correspondence on dog mess, let there be not the slightest doubt. New Forest Dog Owners' Group does and always has supported the principle that dog-owners should pick up after their pets in car park areas.
