Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.

Recently I had the unpleasant experience of driving in the dark and rain last week. It was cold and the rain was so unrelentless, thick and heavy I could hardly see, even with the window wipers on full speed.
